Davidson College Ecological Preserve was established in the
Spring of 2001 to provide unique experiences in teaching and
research for Davidson College students and faculty. The preserve,
encompassing about 200 acres of forested land adjacent to the
Davidson College campus, includes a variety of habitats and
provides homes for many animals and plants. The preserve offers
trails for jogging, walking, biking, and bird watching, as well
as large tracts of habitat for ecological studies.
