The Wildwood Reserve is a 50 acre nature reserve in the Town of Barton (Tioga County) owned and managed by the Carantouan Greenway, a 501 c 3 not-for-profit environmental and conservation-minded organization. It is managed by an all-volunteer board which maintains one and a half miles of mowed and cleared trails, which traverse the varied habitats of pine woods, meadow, hedgerow, pond edge and hardwoods, for public access.
Volunteers have ripped out some exotic honeysuckle and replaced them with native dogwoods in an effort to restore our understory. The Tioga County Soil and Water Conservation District along with the Upper Susquehanna Coalition have constructed vernal pools to serve as breeding sites for our threatened frogs and salamanders. The Greenway maintains a website which contains a down-loadable tree-guide to match our numbered trees for educational purposes. In cooperation with Cornell Lab, the website also has an accessible e-bird button which lists the birds seen on site in the last 20 days. The Carantouan Greenway regularly advertises in the public media and the web site about educational-themed field trips such as ferns, trees, birds, general nature and fall foliage.
