Hertz Family Woods and Nature Preserve

  This park was donated by the Hertz family in memory of Carl and Marjory Hertz and their son, C. Douglas Hertz.  This diverse woodland includes 22 tree species and many wildflowers.  It was preserved by the family to provide a site for public enjoyment.  The park includes a one-mile trail.  The land was donated to the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, who in turn donated the park to SCC.


Hiking, walking, bird watching, geocaching, and several other activities are possible however we do not maintain trails nor do we have picnic tables or grills available.
