The Rosewood Nature Study Area is a beautiful 219-acre marshland that is being actively restored and studied by Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation staff and AmeriCorps members. Currently, there are roughly 2.5 miles of trails that are partially paved with some areas of smoothed gravel. A Visitor Center on the property provides educational and informational materials for both children and adults. The Nature Study Area is perfect for walking, birdwatching, fishing, and engaging in community science.
