McDowell Nature Center and Preserve
Along the banks of Lake Wylie, McDowell Nature Center and Preserve is an almost undeveloped forest area and one of Charlotte's main attractions. The center aims to educate people about the need to conserve the ecology and environment. The place is home to over 100 species of birds, 21 species of mammals and amphibians. Rare species, such as the Seminole bat and the Loggerhead Shrike, are also spotted here. Those interested in kayaking, canoeing, nature walking, and fishing can get in touch with the center for information.
Rhonda and Suzanne were excellent!! They traveled out to our event at Cane Creek. They did not mind the rain and the Scouts were very appreciative for their information and animals. The Parents and Leaders were very thankful they stuck to their committment!!
IMHO, this is the nicest nature preserve in the Charlotte area and I've been to all the major ones. It has shoreline on Lake Wylie with nice views and is a great place to get away and enjoy some serenity and natural beauty. There is no admission charge on weekdays, but they now charge $5 per vehicle on weekends and holidays.
