At this reserve, you will see three stages of forest succession. First, there is an open meadow with stands of hawthorn and gray dogwood. Then, there are early-stage woods of elm, shagbark hickory and maple, plus a mature forest of sugar maple, beech, oak and shagbark and shellbark hickory. Finally, there is a beech/maple forest. The three habitats and their variety of trees also mean a variety of birds and wildflowers.
