Here along the Wabash River are sycamore, hackberry, burr and red oak trees that have stood along the river since Native Americans and early explorers paddled down the river. On the bluffs are sugar and black maple trees and red elms. In spring, there are warblers and other migrating birds in the trees. In summer, there are nesting birds such as the wood thrush and red-eyed vireo. Woodland wildflowers, including shooting star and wild hyacinth, decorate the woodland floor in season.
