Free from the use of artificial chemicals for many years an organic environment that supports healthy plant, bird and animal life has been created. Truly a “birder’s” paradise!
The possibilities for recreation abound. Walking, running, riding, x country skiing, snowshoeing, skidooing…choices are endless.
