The Fox-Shank Preserve was purchased by Black Swamp Conservancy in 2021. This former farm field along Tontogany Creek is being restored back to natural habitats including functioning floodplain and wetlands, and being developed into an outdoor laboratory for the Otsego School District. We look forward to the Chronolog site showcasing the property’s transformation.
The Black Swamp Conservancy was founded in 1993 by a group of people alarmed by the rapidly accelerating rate of development in rural northwest Ohio. These concerned citizens recognized the need to protect and enhance the best remaining natural and agricultural areas in this region and to promote responsible stewardship of the land.
