Nature Facts

Many trees along our trails are labeled with their names! Both scientific and common!

There are a bunch of mammals that visit or live in Heartland Forest such as, bats, coyotes, chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels, muskrats, opossums, raccoons, foxes, and deer!

Frogs, toads, newts, and Salamanders are amphibians, meaning they have an aquatic gill-breathing larval stage, followed by a terrestrial lung-breathing adult stage, but some amphibians stay in an aquatic habitat and keep their gills as an adult such as the Axolotl!

Heartland Forest has 4 kinds of maple trees: the black maple, the red maple, the sugar maple, and the freeman’s Maple. The maple genus is called Acer! The sugar maple’s binomial name (scientific name) is Acer saccharum!
