July 8, 2022 – Midland residents and nature fans across Michigan are invited to celebrate the grand opening of the Eagle Ridge Nature Area on Tuesday, July 19 at 4 p.m. in Stratford Woods Park, 3922 E. Ashman St.

The Eagle Ridge Nature Area is a 140-acre wooded land parcel located next to Stratford Woods Park. The grounds feature forest, sandy ridges, and natural wetlands and will offer nature trails with rest benches, a boardwalk with wetlands access and viewing areas, a pollinator-friendly area, and educational signage highlighting the unique topographical features of the property. Eagle Ridge Nature Area connects to the public parking areas at Stratford Woods Park for easy access.

The project was developed by Dow as a component of its natural resources damage restoration efforts and will be transferred to the City of Midland for future oversight and preservation.

The grand opening celebration will feature a formal ribbon cutting ceremony with remarks from local, state, and federal officials and conclude with an opportunity for attendees to meander the trails and experience Eagle Ridge Nature Area for themselves.
