Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve selected as Wetland Treasure

Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve has been selected as a 2023 Wetland Treasure of the Carolinas by the Carolina Wetland Association.

The program seeks to increase public awareness and appreciation of wetlands and the City of Raleigh is proud to have Horseshoe Farm Nature Preserve represented. With a floodplain forest consisting of bottomland hardwoods and a system of natural river levees the site holds many key characteristics valued by the Carolina Wetlands Association. The floodplain forest that surrounds the meadow is also designated as a Significant Natural Heritage Natural Area by the North Carolina Natural Heritage Program.
