Birds Birds include several neo-tropical migratory songbirds such as Scarlet Tanager, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and Ovenbird
Animals Animals include red fox, tree frog, raccoon, eastern chipmunk, and eastern flying squirrel
Equestrian trails Horseback riding on designated trails under good conditions (not wet or muddy); horse trailers are not permitted
Woodlands Increasingly rare area of interior woodlands (defined as an area at least 300 feet from any edge, such as a road, lawn, or meadow)
Wetlands and streams Buck Run, a tributary of the Brandywine Creek, runs through the preserve. Thousands of new trees have been planted in the Buck Run riparian area to create a better filter for surface and groundwater pollution.
