Mission (Abstract)

Sucker Creek Preserve, acquired by the City of Detroit Lakes in August 2001, conserves 64.24 acres of a remnant of Minnesota's original post-glacial maple-basswood forest for future generations. Visitors of all ages are offered a self-guided environmental learning experience. Topography includes swamp, designated trout stream, woods and prairie. A circular parking lot welcomes three buses, six cars and a handicapped accessible van. The handicapped accessible path threads through woods. A small prairie cul de sac hosts a hillside amphitheater allowing visitors a meadow-like view while learning about the Preserve. Unimproved north and south perimeter paths add adventure for the trekker.
