Trexler Nature Preserve to Open Friday

Lehigh County’s Trexler Nature Preserve will officially open at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 30 at the ford of the Jordan Creek.

Lehigh County Executive Don Cunningham will detail the $2.75 million upgrade, which includes dramatically improved public access, 19 miles of expanded trails, better wheelchair accessibility and an emphasis on passive recreation such as hike, biking and horseback riding.

The 1,100 acre preserve was established by the late Gen. Harry C. Trexler in the early 1900s to save the American bison from extinction.

Bison burgers will be served right after the news conference followed by a wagon tour of the new trails and North Range.

Oh boy bison burgers. Did you shot the bison youself, Donny.
Interestingly, you are referring to the Jordon creek before it becomes the Lehigh county sewer water release and the drying up of the Little Lehigh, a result of your economic development efforts.
A great legacy.
