Conservation & Wildlife

Flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park’s natural heritage, please don’t damage or remove them.

Wildlife is not prevalent in the park although large mammals such as moose, White-tailed deer, Mule deer and Black bear are fairly common throughout the area. Squirrels, chipmunks, beaver, Snowshoe hares and muskrat are more likely to be seen. Birds of the open woodlands are abundant in summer with species like the Northern Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Ovenbird, American Redstart and White-throated sparrow much in evidence. Waterfowl are frequent visitors to the lake and shoreline and a walk through the park will often rouse a Sharp-tailed or Ruffed grouse.

Park users should always be aware of bears and other wildlife in our park environment. Never feed or approach bears or other wildlife.
