The large lake, abundant wetlands, old fields and mature forests provide a diversity of habitats for wildlife, especially waterfowl, eagles and ospreys.

I took my Wife and 5 daughters ages ranging from 11 to 3. They all dressed in prairie dresses and would love to start reenacting. We loved the opportunity to come out to this and look forward to other things.
