Description:

Set in its rolling countryside, this mature sugar maple woodland is noted for its fine display of fall colour. The uplands also support eastern hemlock, white cedar, yellow birch, bur oak, basswood, green ash, and a number of southern plants. In damper areas white cedar swamps and wet thickets are found. The rich hardwoods harbor a great diversity of species, including scarlet tanager, black maple, and zigzag goldenrod. Northern two-lined salamanders inhabit the shores of the Indian River, are an extension of populations occurring throughout much of the Mississippi River drainage. Large stands of cardinal-flower are present. The property encompasses 68 ha in total.
