In the southeast corner of North St. Paul, along Holloway Avenue, are 28 acres with paths to explore various ecosystems.
Wood chipped trails lead you through the various ecosystems of emergent shoreline, wet meadow, mesic prairie, savanna, upland prairie, oak forest, basswood forest and a cottonwood/silver maple flood plain. The trails are an easy half mile stroll around the pond with additional short trails to explore.
Observe wildlife in their native habitat. See warblers that use the preserve to rest and refuel for their migration to northern nesting grounds. Check out the various rocks - glacial erratics that were left when the glaciers receded.
