Scarlet Tanager, Yellow-throated Vireo, Rough-legged Hawk and Saw-whet owls use the property. With a bird checklist of 186 species, 600 plant species, boardwalks, a viewing platform and beautiful visitor center, this property is a bird watcher’s paradise. Environmental education is a key mission along with land and water conservation.
