Ambler Flatwoods Nature Preserve is owned by the Shirley Heinze Land Trust and is comprised of two different parcels. The first parcel of 208 acres is a state dedicated Nature Preserve. However, the 40 acre expansion parcel, purchased in 2010, contains a mix of high and lower quality habitats. This flatwoods ecosystem harbors relict populations of several plant species that are typical of more northern latitudes.
