The Morse Wildlife Preserve is situated near the headwaters of the north fork of Muck Creek. The 238-acre preserve is a mosaic of conifer forest, wetlands, oak savanna, and prairie. With several different types of habitats on the property, it is an ideal home for many bird species. The wetland, covering about half of the Preserve, includes a large pond and several open channels. Both migrating and resident birds use the wetland, which changes configuration regularly because of beaver dam building. Other mammals, such as deer, coyote, bobcat, rabbits, and a variety of rodents live at the preserve or make foraging visits. NOTE: Dogs are not allowed at the Preserve, so please leave pets at home when you come to visit. Carpooling is encouraged. The Preserve is open by permission only and on second Sunday afternoons April through October. Download the Trail Guide on their website before you go.
