Native plants are plentiful

  Many people have commented on the diverse plant life on the acreage, including wildflowers all over and large trees on the periphery and smaller, typical water-tolerant trees in the drainage that runs from north to south in the center of the parcel. The diverse vegetation, especially the understory vegetation in the central drainage, provides excellent spring and early summer nesting sites for numerous species of song birds. In fall, winter and spring, many migrating species visit the area because of the wide variety of seeds that remain on the land all year long.
