Waseeka Wildlife Sanctuary
The sanctuary features a secluded
pond that harbors interesting
wildlife at different times of the
year. Have your binoculars or
spotting scope ready when you are
on the dam because it offers a great
view of the pond. For an interesting
woodland walk (1 mile) take the
Sassafras Trail where you can see
beaver work, look for woodland
birds, see evidence of past fires
and, of course, sassafras.
