The Woods was a no-man’s land of tangled trees, brush, and debris when it was acquired in 2013.  Today the area provides a shady park-like setting for visitors to enjoy.  More than 30 different kinds of trees attract a variety of woodland birds and a few species of mammals.  Enjoy a leisurely walk through the woods as you look at the interesting variety of trees and animals.  How many can you identify?
