Wild Woodstock Walks: Fall Beauty at Hennen Conservation Area

Hennen Conservation Area had a conservation easement put on it in 2008 by the Hennens, and later was donated to the city of Woodstock to be made into a park. The Land Conservancy office is located in the farmhouse here. This area was a farm field in the 1970s, but the Hennens bought it and started planting trees. Forty years have gone by, and now the area is transitioning into a nice natural area with a good diversity of trees and other plants. A network of trails provides easy access around the park. At least two parasitic plants live here--Indian pipes and dodder. Hennen is also home to nesting green herons. Hennen is a blend of wetlands, prairie and savannas all in one parcel.
