To ignite curiosity and respect for our natural world through accessible, interactive and educational programs.

Nature Facts

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

Heartland Forest is home to 9 species at risk! The Round-leaved Greenbrier, The Black Ash, the Common Snapping Turtle, The Midland Painted Turtle, The Monarch Butterfly, The Grass Pickerel, The Wood Thrush, The Easter Wood-pewee, and the Barn Swallow!

Turtles can be seen sunbathing to regulate their temperature, they are called exotherms or “cold blooded”.

Heartland Forest has a large swamp forest (or slough forest) on its property! This wetland is seasonal with parts drying up in the summer.
