Also operated by the Western Pennsylvania Audubon Society, Todd Nature Reserve is the perfect place for outdoor lovers to explore trails and take in the sights and sounds of nature.
Located in Sarver, this 334-acre park consists of five miles of rustic trails, three streams and a man-made pond.
Todd Nature Reserve is part of Pennsylvania Audubon's Buffalo Valley Important Bird Area program, as well as the Buffalo Creek Watershed Conservation Plan.
The hiking trails, abundant with the natural beauty of the forest, streams and a pond, feature a rugged landscape and rustic views provide a welcome retreat from the highly manicured suburban world. Todd Nature Reserve promotes education, nature study and passive recreation while protecting the reserve’s natural areas by minimizing development.
Ornithologist W.E. Clyde Todd, who made his first significant birding discoveries on the land while visiting his grandfather at the end of the nineteenth century, donated the land that became the first part of the reserve, which began in 1942.
