Designation extends 13.7 miles, from County Road 68 to the creek’s confluence with the
St. Joseph River in Allen County.
The Cedar Creek Corridor is the largest forested corridor in the region.
Riparian (riverbank) and upland forest dominate the area, along with wetlands and
gravel hill prairies.
A-3 zoning of most of the Cedar Creek valley increases property values and limits
high-density, commercial, and industrial development while protecting and maintaining
the watershed’s natural qualities.
ACRES Land Trust
has protected 1,527 acres along Cedar Creek and will increase acreage
as opportunities arise.
