Lindquist Wildlife Sanctuary

Lindquest Wildlife Sanctuary

This six-acre site, once a bustling hobo camp when railroading activity was at its peak, is today a diverse natural community, with a wide variety of plant and animal species. The railroad right-of-way area is a diverse natural community consisting primarily of marsh, tall grass prairie and woodland habitats. This area provides an outdoor classroom on the edge of town in which local people can view waterfowl, songbirds, woodland mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Small patches of native tall grass prairie species can also be seen, all of which point out that Mother Nature never completely gives up her grasp of an area.
