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

Nature Facts

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

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

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!

The white-tailed deer has 4 stomachs! These deer also mark their territory by rubbing bark off trees.
