RECREATION AT 122 WEST FARM

What a spectacular place to hunt! Deer and turkey are in abundance. The small creek that runs through the property, the farm fields, and the abundance of hickory, white oak, and red oak create a habitat for the large and small game. Years of progressive wildlife management practices have created an essential wildlife preserve. Early on management goals prompted overall wildlife health, facilitated the harvest of game. The abundance of a year-round water source created by a mountain spring, provides diversity of both plants and animals. The streams and their surrounding aquatic plant life create a water supported community with a wide variety of wildlife. Some of the margin of the creek are fragile low lands, and these low lands support aquatic food web, provide shelter for wildlife, and stabilize the shores of the stream. The plant life associated with the wetlands includes rushes, slugs, cat tails, duck week, and algae. There are many animals that live in the water and around the edge of the creek including raccoons, opossums, blue heron, turtles, salamanders, crayfish, muskrat, bullfrog, eagles, hawks, and red wing birds. The property has a mixture of hardwood species including the white pine. The diverse tree species coupled with edge effect created by the creeks, hollows, ridges, rock out-croppings and forest is a textbook habitat benefiting all of the resident wildlife population. The hardwood forest provides an essential nutrients source, produces tons of hardwood mask, including acorns, hickory nuts, beechnut, and black walnut. Soft mass includes sage horn, black cherry, tulip poplar seeds, maple seeds, autumn olive berries and blackberries.
