Trail & Bird Sighting Info
All trails are open.
A Monarch butterfly was seen at the milkweed in front of the nature center today.
Mulberry trees are producing fruit, which attracts many birds. There are several places along the dam and throughout the park to watch them gorging on mulberries.
A Bald Eagle was seen over the lake from the North Boardwalk.
Snapping Turtles have been laying eggs in the mulch pile beside the nature center. Morning is the best time to see them.
Black Bear tracks can be seen on both boardwalks. The most extensive set is on the North Boardwalk starting before the first viewing pavilion and picking up again after it.
