Under the management of the SBLC, Discovery Preserve, formerly known as Euclid Linear Park, has become a learning landscape for children and families. The initial investment came in summer of 2014 when funding and volunteers from The Dow Chemical Company and others made it possible to re-deck half of an aging boardwalk, rehabilitate signage and a port-a-toilet shelter, remove invasive species, plant thousands of native plants, and develop informative displays.
The site is designed is a learning landscape with a spotting scope, native grass and wildflower plantings, and the Chippewa Nature Center Pavilion.
