Warner Conservation Area (9 acres)

Accessible from Mosier Street, this area has a path which leads into a wooded honeysuckle grove on a hill, and then down to a wet meadow and stream crossed by a boardwalk to an open hayfield. These nine acres were acquired from the Warner family in two portions, in 1983 and 1987, with assistance from a Self-Help Grant. The area is named after Edwin Warner, former South Hadley Tree Warden. Yearly mowing is necessary to keep the hayfield on this parcel open. Mountainbrook subdivision is located along the southern edge of the area, and has a considerable amount of preserved open space in private ownership, compared to a conventional subdivision.
