Hike or bike into Buehler Preserve from downtown Galena and experience the prairie life! Pets welcome. Fishing is allowed.
The eastern portion of this preserve contains hilly woodland; the western portion, a flood plain that offers water filtration, flood storage, game and non-game habitat, a prairie restoration, and public open space in close proximity to the city of Galena. The Galena River Trail, a favorite of bikers, hikers, and dog-walkers, extends from the Meeker Street footbridge into the preserve. JDCF maintains a mowed trail around its perimeter. Camping is not permitted.
