Orchard Glen: This site, consisting of over 50 acres of woodlands, is an old apple orchard.  Restoration of the woodland, prairie, and wetland habitats on this site  will make Orchard Glen a suitable home for a number for bird species like the Bobolink, Wood Duck, Canada Goose, Mallard,  Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Northern Flicker, and Red-headed Woodpecker. Keep an eye out for Little Bluestem, Big Bluestem, Indian Grass, Leadplant, and Purple Prairie Clover as you pass though the grasslands. 

Forest River: More than 40 acres of woodlands and 15 acres of prairie are creating a home for birds and plants like Marbled Godwits, Pied-billed Grebes, Field Sparrows, Tall Blazing Star, and common milkweed. 

Heritage Hills: Wetlands and over 30 acres of prairie habitat are being restored at Heritage Hills. Target bird species for this site include the Bobolink, Western Medowlark, Upland Sand Piper, Grasshopper Sparrow, along with geese and mallards. Switchgrass, Green Needlegrass, and Yarrow can all be found in the prairie.
