Wayne Woods

The 13-acre Wayne Woods is an impressive natural area despite its relatively small area. Located in the karst topography of western Monroe County, this preserve features several sinkholes, a mature woods with many large trees, and a spectacular display of spring wildflowers.

Sycamore volunteers and staff work to protect the wildflowers at the preserve by pulling purple wintercreeper and garlic mustard, as well as controlling other invasive plants, which could otherwise take over and displace the diversity of native species present.
