To illustrate the expanding scope of its community and outreach programming, the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve has begun a branding program through which it will also be known as the Kreher Preserve and Nature Center. An outreach program of Auburn University’s School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences, the property continues to operate officially using the name it has carried since 1993, but additional use of the new moniker signals the growth in programming made available on the grounds. While often informally referred to by variations of its “preserve” identity, the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve was established in 1993 by a gift of land from Louise Kreher Turner and Frank Allen Turner and is managed as a not-for-profit program of Auburn University’s School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences. The nature center offers a full calendar of events and features five miles of hiking trails, amphitheater, pavilion and nature playground with ample parking, shaded seating, restrooms and drinking fountains. The property is open to the public daily at no charge from sunrise to sunset and is located at 2222 N. College St., Auburn.
