About Ivy Creek
Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Ivy Creek Natural Area (ICNA) is a 215-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir in Charlottesville, Virginia.
With over six miles of trails traversing a mix of upland woods, pine stands, fields, streams, and shoreline, ICNA is an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia.
The Forests of Ivy Creek: Past, Present and Future by Tom Dierauf is now available as a PDF download.
Many ICF members and partner organizations have been waiting for Mr. Dierauf's two-year inventory and report on ICNA.
This important work was done in conjunction with the County of Albemarle to catalog the changes in and condition of the land, tree stands, and biodiversity of our conservation area and give a glimpse of what it might look like in the future.
