Recognizing the importance of collaboration and partnerships, built on mutual goals and values, West Creek stepped in to acquire a critical property on behalf of the Medina County Park District. This acquisition is an example of West Creek’s ability to identify and implement viable significant opportunities for land conservation, restoration, and access. With each partner project, West Creek provides the technical expertise, experience and willingness to pursue projects such as this in support of partner organizations and the overall mission of land and water protection, and public recreation.
“We are very pleased we could assist Medina County Park District with this important acquisition. The site is a mosaic of a variety of habitats, and it is probable that this site once held a glacial fen community prior to conversion to agricultural uses.” Joe Leslie, Director of Real Estate, West Creek Conservancy
West Creek coordinated the project and applied for funding, with the intent to convey fee simple interest to Medina County Park District. Funding was successful and the property is now owned by the Park District.
