The wildlife is abundant along this network of trails that combines woodlands and wetlands, prairie and savanna, for a nature lover’s perfect package. The center also offers a schedule of guided hikes and events. Woodland, oak savanna, prairie, and wetland are all neatly packed into this nature park within the larger Whitnall Park. A labyrinth of trails awaits, with an abundance of active wildlife—from songbirds and waterfowl to deer and their fawns—and a variety of wildflowers. There are a number of loop options depending on your interests and time. The route suggested here makes a circuit of the entire natural area, passing through a portion of all loops, but certainly you have the option of lingering in one loop or another. This is a park worth returning to often. Stop in at the nature center for information about what’s to see each time you visit.
