      From the high point of the Aicher Preserve, elevation 505 feet, one has striking views of the surrounding countryside. Below are a splendid hayfield, cornfields, and woodlands, all part of the preserve. A small lake and an alder shaded stream form the headwaters of Bark Meadow Brook. Bobolinks return from their winter home in Argentina to nest on the preserve and rear their young in the hayfield, which is not mowed until later in the season. Migrant waterfowl rest and feed on the lake and Great Crested Flycatchers call in the woodlands. American Kestrels, Tree Swallows, and Eastern Bluebirds also nest on the preserve, and Woodcock can be seen doing their courting display in the spring.

      To enter the preserve, you should park on Freedley Road and enter through the farm gate, which is usually open. A cornfield is to your left, and the lake will appear to your right as you proceed. You can turn right into a network of woods roads or continue straight ahead and over the dam. Follow the tree line to either the right or the left.
