      Meadowbrook Nature Preserve features woods, wetlands, streams, and pockets of prairie. Three small streams meander through heavily wooded deep ravines. Spring wildflowers thrive on the steep slopes in April and May. The preserve provides good habitat for wildlife, including migrating birds and bats. Birding is good year-round. A long-term reforestation project is underway to return former agricultural fields to the moraine forest that once existed here.
