When Grand River Partners, Inc. merged with Western Reserve Land Conservancy in 2011, Ashcroft Woods was a 379-acre gem. Since then, the property has grown to more than 1,000 acres. The story of Ashcroft Woods is about the long haul of conservation. It’s not about conserving the 1,000-acre site in one fell swoop, it’s about being tenacious and determined, building relationships with landowners so they know we’re dedicated to conservation and preserving their land for future generations. Ashcroft Woods is a wild place, and saving wild places saves the wildlife that inhabit them.
