The Christy Farm Nature Preserve (CFNP) is an Ohio Non-Profit Corporation founded by D. LaMar Christy, Jr. in 1989. Our organization was created to manage and preserve the 147 acres of former farmland, pasture, and over one mile of the winding Muskellunge Creek that was generously donated by D. LaMar Christy Jr. and formerly owned by the multiple generations of the Christy Family. The Christy Farm historically was used to cultivate crops, raise cattle, and nurture work horses and race horses. Since farming operations ceased in the 1980s, the natural hardwood deciduous wetland forests slowly have been regaining their hold over the Muskellunge Creek Valley. Our board of fourteen trustees manages the property through active committees. The Christy Farm Nature Preserve Board of Trustees granted a conservation easement to the Black Swamp Conservancy in November 2013.
