Get out and explore the Morse Wildlife Preserve - was established by a donation of land from Lloyd and Maxine Morse. Situated at the headwaters of the north fork of Muck Creek, and consists of almost 100 acres. A tremendous volunteer effort is under way to reintroduce native prairie plants, remove invasive plant species and foster the growth of the oak savannah. The Morse Force, which serves as the volunteer management team for the Preserve, holds monthly work parties to restore the wetland, prairie and upland habitats as well as building a boardwalk and new trails. The preserve is a mosaic of forests, wetlands, meadow and remnant prairie home to a variety of birds and wildlife.
Spend a couple of hours at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. The tram is currently closed for tours, but they’re offering a Wild Drive, where you get to go through the park in the comfort of your own vehicle. Here you can experience seeing moose eating grass out of the lake, newborn bison calf, herds of Roosevelt elk and mountain goats roaming the free area. Reservations do need to be made for this tour as space if limited. Or enjoy the Wild Walk Experience - Laugh as Hawthorne and Huckleberry, two young orphaned grizzly bears splash and play in their pool, listen as the high pitched whistle of the eagles draws you closer and if you’re quiet and still, you may get a glimpse of the gray wolf masterfully sneaking through the brush. There are over 40 species of native Northwest animals who call this park their home.
