Accessible only by canoe, Nine Mile Island lies within the Chippewa River and Nine Mile Slough ecosystem. Most of this 900-acre island is floodplain forest. Silver maple, green ash and swamp white oak mix with silver maple and river birch attracting Cerulean, Black-and white and Prothonotary warblers along with Red-shouldered Hawks. The northeast corner of the island is sandy with high quality oak barrens of Hill-Æs, burr and red oaks. Here one can find Field and Lark Sparrows and Gray Catbirds. Prairie plants like the white wild indigo, stiff goldenrod and rough blazing-star grow among big and little bluestem grasses and three species of drop-seed.
