Neff Wetland Dedication

You're invited to a public dedication celebration for Neff Wetland, 36 acres of wetland located on the eastern edge of Fairfield. The Neff Wetland is familiar to many residents of Fairfield who frequent the crushed limestone path along the dike. It is bisected by part of the 16-mile Loop Trail that encircles the town of Fairfield, linking Lamson Woods State Preserve to the south with the trails heading to Chatauqua Park. Attendees are encouraged to bring their bikes to ride the Fairfield Loop Trail.

Neff Wetland was recently donated to the the Jefferson County Conservation Board through INHF by Dave and Sheri Neff on the condition that it remain open for public access. Dave and Sheri will both speak at the event. After the dedication, a short wetland program will be presented by Naturalist Therese Cummiskey. 

Read more about the Neff Wetland and why Dave and Sheri decided to permanently protect this special place for all to enjoy on INHF's blog.

Parking is available in the Lamson Woods lot which is at the east end of Fillmore Ave off Mint Blvd.
