The Connemara Meadow Nature Preserve represents 72 acres of natural habitat, rich in floral diversity that is reminiscent of the tall grass Blackland Prairie that once existed here. This family land was set aside by Frances Williams in 1981 so that residents would be able to experience the unspoiled beauty of nature forever. It is owned and perpetually maintained by the Connemara Conservancy Foundation. The meadow is made available to the public as a place to revive the spirit while teaching the importance of nature and biodiversity in the world where we live. Long pants and closed toe shoes recommended.
