Bradford County


Wyalusing Borough & Township • 88.6 Acres

The Conservation Area is a combination of gently sloping fields, hedge rows, forested woodlots, and open water marsh.

There is evidence of a minor selective timber harvest throughout small sections of the woodlots that may have occurred between 30 to 50 years ago. Other natural and manmade habitat features on the Property includes areas of active agricultural fields consisting of a variety of grasses used for hay production, early succession fields, woodlands, hedge rows, roadside corridors, an open water marsh, emergent shrub/sedge wetlands, spring seeps, a vernal pool, and a residential estate including a below ground pool.

Collectively, these habitat types found within in the Conservation Area host a diverse amount of flora and fauna species. The open water marsh for example, is surrounded by a grassy vegetative buffer that aids in the protection and functional values regarding this particular wetland ecosystem. The Property also provides open space and scenic enjoyment to the public as seen from public township roads, county roads and US Route 6.

An impressive number of animals have been observed throughout the Kilmer Property. Included are many uncommon and/or rare species, such as federally protected bald eagles, ospreys and sandhill cranes. This is due to the aquatic habitats and plant diversity offered by the Natural Plant and Wetland Communities. The open water marsh, wetlands, fields, meadows, vernal pool, woodlots, and roadside edges comprise a mix of wildlife habitats benefiting both terrestrial and aquatic animals.
