FLOODS OF WILDFLOWERS adorn the prairie from mid-May toJuly. The oak and pine woodlands are refuge to deer. Once known as "Hartland", the prairie is alive with wildlife and birds. The sky of very early spring and autumn echoes with the sound of flocks of Canada geese and ducks. Bluebirds return each spring and share the sky with meadowlarks, magpies, and shadowy raptors. Wild turkeys flutter across the roads beneath the oak trees that also provide cover for the wary partridge and families of quail.
