Leopold Woods

Leopold Woods is a wildlife refuge acquired from Don Norton in February 2010.  The tract includes small areas of cool season and prairie grassland and planted 20-year-old trees.  A small parking area is provided, but no other improvements are allowed on the area due to deed restrictions.


Hiking, walking, bird watching, geocaching, and several other activities are possible however we do not maintain trails nor do we have picnic tables or grills available.
