A Natural Paradise
Situated on one of the Susquehanna River’s most dramatic oxbow turns, this 669-acre nature preserve is open to the public. Since 2006, the Howland Preserve has been one of Wyoming County’s few public natural areas.
With beautifully kept trails, a historic barn and access to the river, this space has become popular among photographers and nature lovers. And its accessibility has also made it an ideal location for weddings and events. The preserve also features a non-motorized boat launch.
Hikers, kayakers and even bird watchers enjoy the Howland Preserve for its natural beauty and abundant wildlife. Bald eagles and other incredible birds of prey fish and hunt along the river and its fertile banks.
