Fel Pro RRR Conservation Area

Fel-Pro RRR is a example of protecting natural areas habitat while providing diverse outdoor recreational opportunities. Unlike any other site the Conservation District owns, Fel-Pro RRR in Cary offers visitors activities more commonly associated with park districts. Typical activities on a Conservation District site are more passive in nature like hiking, fishing and picnicking. A visitor can enjoy all those, plus a sand volleyball court, basketball court, ball diamond, and a disc golf course. It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s playground! Looking for the wilder side? Get lost in the beauty of the site which includes a gravel hill prairie, savanna, sedge meadow, fen, and several spring-fed lakes. Wetlands spread out from a small stream that meanders through the park. A nature trail invites hikers through an oak savanna where columbine and bottlebrush grass have reestablished, over steep glacial hills to a rare dry hill prairie filled with dropseed, little bluestem and birdsfoot violet, then to a high-quality graminoid fen where goldenrod, swamp thistle, angelica, and fringed gentian flourish. Then over the wooden bridge to a large or smaller pond to cast a line for largemouth bass, bluegill, pumpkinseed, or warmouth that lurk in the waters below. Visitors who appreciate the cooler temperatures of autumn and gather with a few friends for some 3 on 3 basketball or encourage some family members to do some high-flying action on the disc golf course. The one-mile paved, shaded trail that leads to most of the recreational amenities and is perfect for strollers and wheelchairs.
