  Our woodlands took a big hit over the last few years, mostly due to the invasive Emerald Ash Borer insect.  As a result we had to cut down many dead trees for the safety of our visitors.  While it might look upsetting it will create new and healthey habitat for the future.  We also mow the meadow just once a year to attract more insects during the summer months, soon the meadow will be lush with native grasses and flowers.
