Tour the Prairie
FROM BICYCLE TRAILS TO MOUNTAIN BIKING TO WATERFALLS & PARKS
Majestic bur oak woodlands dominate the steeply sloping riparian landscape of the Cottonwood River within the 700 acre Garvin Park. A rich variety of wildlife use this park; snow trillium and bloodroot welcome spring along the wooded slopes, followed by the first wave of migrating birds. A healthy array of riparian trees provide welcome share in summer for white tailed deer raise their young along with bluebirds, towhees, and grosbeaks. Fall brings a small splash of color, and migrating hawks that settle in before the next day's flight. The deep ravines give shelter to over-wintering owls and eagles, deer, and wild turkey.
