Beaver Meadow Conservation Area. This 89 hectare (220 acre) Conservation Area features a large wetland that harbours wood ducks, osprey and herons. Perfect for plant and bird lovers, as there are approximately 330 plant species on the property that house a variety of songbirds. Wild ginger, baneberry, and Jack-in-the-pulpit are some of the wildflowers that may be found here, along with a mix of deciduous trees including white birch, American beech, black walnut, butternut, shagbark hickory and six species of maples. Two short hiking trails branch off from the parking lot, each ending at a scenic observation platform overlooking the wetland.
