This gorgeous, historic, and bio-diverse preserve has been a project in the works for several years. Thanks to our supporters, volunteers and staff, French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust is proud to own and protect the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve. This 108-acre mosaic of woods, fields, wetlands, and stunning scenery opened to the public in 2019 and contains a 1-mile rolling trail for exploration.
Recognized as a “Birding Hot Spot” by the Valley Forge Audubon Society, the Thomas P. Bentley Nature Preserve currently has 123 species recorded as having been observed there (click here for eBird listing).
In addition to the beautiful scenery, natural areas and trails, the history at Warwick Furnace is rich.
