There is lots of wildlife living on the Preserve! Watch out for a variety of bird species, deer, muskrats, and rodents. They can be found hanging out in our wetlands, in the trees, or roaming the prairies!
MNP prides itself on removing nonnative, invasive species and planting native plants, trees and shrubs. We then collect seed from our native plants in order to use for seeding in the fall and winter. Help us out by looking for a variety of plant species!
Insects are a huge part of MNP! Whether they pollinate, eat pesky bugs, or look pretty, we want to know what is here! You can find these guys all throughout the Preserve!
