Meadowbrook Marsh Preserve expanded by 80 acres

Through the Black Swamp Conservancy and the Kracer family, Danbury Township’s Meadowbrook Marsh preserve has acquired 80 more acres to bring the preserve to a total of 193 acres. The land has been deeded to the township at no cost under a conservation easement, due to the collaborative efforts of Richard Kracer, Rob Krain of the Black Swamp Conservancy and the Danbury Township trustees.
