A large deer bounds across the grassy lawn, running with its herd across the neighborhood. A small fox sneaks out from behind a tree while the sun sets low on the horizon. Racoons sneak around while scrounging around in your trash bin, knocking it over and leaving a fun chore to take care of in the morning. An owl takes perch upon a tree limb outside your bedroom window, softly calling to the white moon.
It is well known that deer roam around the neighborhoods especially during the evenings, but Willow Park is home to a large ecosystem that goes beyond deer! It is known that racoons, foxes, coyotes, rabbits, owls and many more creatures take refuge in the woodlands of Willow Park, but how much do we really know about these incredibly fascinating and diverse creatures? We shall learn a few facts about these creatures that may open your eyes to the small little ecosystem thriving outside your kitchen window.
