About this Location

Walter C. Best Wildlife Preserve is a 101-acre reservation located in Munson Township, 1.5 miles south of the City of Chardon. The Preserve’s natural habitats provide visitors the opportunity to enjoy a rich diversity of plant and animal life.

Walter C. Best, the founder of the nearby Best Sand Corporation, built a 30-acre lake in the 1960s because of his interest in waterfowl. After his death, his wife, Edna May, donated the lake and surrounding land to Geauga Park District. The Preserve was dedicated in 1988.
