Leaders: Karyn Molines & Marla McIntosh
Easy, natural surface trails, short drive to the site 24-acre Wooded Hillock on the north edge of the campus contains an urban forest and a good example of a once-common terrace gravel forest. These elevated areas of gravelly acidic soils tend to have a diversity of oak trees, with blueberries and huckleberries in the understory. It was threatened by development, but thanks to the efforts of Dr. McIntosh and groups like MNPS, the forest has been preserved and being used as a natural classroom to understand biodiversity and our native forests.
