Flambeau Mine Trails
This 181-acre site was an open-pit, copper and gold mine from 1991-1999. It is a good example of mine reclamation. Four miles of well-maintained trails along mostly flat terrain provide for good views of grassland birds such as Meadowlarks, Song Sparrows, and Common Yellow-throated Warblers. The marshes are home to Canada Geese, Great Blue Herons, and Marsh Wrens. Interpretive signs educate and inform visitors about the reclamation of the mine and the restoration of native habitat.
