Burt Lake

Stroll along the one mile trail to find bluebell, jack-in-the-pulpit and many other woodland wildflowers. The forested area has hood habitat for migrating warblers, Northern Oriole, Eastern Bluebird, Eastern Wood Pewee, Great-crested Flycatcher, Cedar Waxwing, Brown Thrasher, Indigo Bunting, and a variety of woodpeckers.

Pothole Birding

This 145 acre lake/wetland is a great place to visit during waterfowl migration. Be sure to stop in early September when you may see hundreds of American White Pelicans as they gather for their journey south.
