This 1,600-acre cedar swamp and forested upland holds deer, Ruffed Grouse, snowshoe hare, and timber wolves. The area is ideal for hiking and bird watching. Hawks, Bald Eagles and a variety of thrushes and warblers can be found here. The New Wood River runs through the northeastern side of the property. This attracts a variety of wildlife from fur bearers to many species of birds. Look for Le Conte's Sparrows, Sedge Wrens, Alder Flycatchers, and Sandhill Cranes.
