In the late 1960’s, the property which is an 87 acre urban playa lake in its natural state was donated to the City of Midland with the intention of creating a park. However, the city was never able to budget the money for the park. The Midland Naturalists and a cadre of volunteers maintained the preserve for over 20 years. One of these individuals was Jenna Welch, a birding enthusiast and a member of the Midland Naturalists.
