Within the 525-acres of the Grand Traverse Natural Education Reserve, which adjoins Garfield Township’s Boardman Valley Nature Preserve to the north, are a marsh, swamp, level terrain, upland forest, pine forest, creek, and a river. The cover types of the area provide excellent habitat for beaver, otter, mink, fox, deer, and many other animals and birds. The Boardman River, the central feature of the Reserve, runs through the property.
