Our four jack pines were donated in 2017 by local members of Rotary International’s Green Committee. They are expected to do well in the sandy soil and to provide shelter and food for insects, birds, and other  animals visiting the sanctuary.

Black Oak

Black Oaks are our true sun and sand loving trees, as they thrive in this harsh dry environment.  Like other oaks, they are a magnet to wildlife, providing food  for caterpillars and other insects to eat, and attracting birds to eat these insects.  Both birds and mammals eat the acorns.

There is a Bur Oak grove in the parkland next to the sanctuary.  We hope these trees will do as well. They provide shelter and food for insects, birds, and other  animals visiting the sanctuary
