The Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands is a nonprofit, grass-roots community organization committed to the protection, enhancement, and educational use of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands. In 2019, the Friends created the Beaver Hollow Outdoor Education Area on a one-acre portion of their 120-acre conservation property. Beaver Hollow is a fully universally accessible outdoor education and recreation facility, available for all residents and area visitors, regardless of age or physical abilities, to use year-round. Beaver Hollow has a looped driveway that accommodates a full size school bus, 525 feet of accessible walkway that leads to an open-sided pavilion, and continues on to a universally accessible boardwalk that travels 600 feet through a wetland forest.
North Pikes Creek is a birding hotspot so don't forget your camera and binoculars. The boardwalk wildlife viewing platform provides a view of a large, active Great Blue Heron rookery.
We invite you to visit us at Beaver Hollow to enjoy a tranquil outdoor experience in the woods and wetlands, and to visit our website to learn more about the Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands.
