Site CSC04: Northwest River Park
Wildlife watching opportunities abound at this 763-acre park, but the Deer Island Trail is of particular interest to birders. Forests interspersed with wetlands offer a variety of woodlands and swamp associated birds, including prothonotary warblers. The park's aquatic habitats, such as riverside wetlands, swampy ponds, and open lake edges, attract an array of reptiles and amphibians for the curious visitor to discover.
Depart North Landing River Natural Area Preserve, turning left (south) onto Blackwater Road; travel 3.6 miles and turn right on Indian Creek Road. Proceed 4.1 miles to the entrance on the left.
