The Quarry Farm Nature Preserve and Conservation Farm is home to, or at least a stop on the way, for many species of birds, insects, mammals, trees and plants. Because of the variety of ecosystems located here — upland deciduous forest, floodplain forest, grassland, wetland and fresh water stream, the nature preserve offers amateur and professional biologists the opportunity to document species that have not been recorded in this area.
Every attempt is made to document what is sighted on the nature preserve. As frequently as possible, photographs are taken and the subject’s identity is confirmed by at least one expert on that flora or fauna. We invite interested individuals as well as organizations to walk the trails to see what they can find. All we ask is that they share the information.
Here’s what we’ve found, so far:
