ABOUT MORSE WILDLIFE PRESERVE
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 board walk and new trails. The preserve is a mosaic of forests, wetlands, meadow and remnant prairie home to a variety of birds and wildlife.
