Merrill Meadows


    This preserve is a prime example of open meadow; a habitat that is vanishing all too quickly. Purpletop and Little Bluesterm grasses are dotted with a fine strand of New York Aster as well as Common Milkweed, Red Clover and Pokeberry. Swallows, hawks and butterflies make use of the open space and the Bluebirds that nest here find it a necessity. In addition, the dogwood trees that edge the meadow provide a welcome food supply for migratory and wintering birds.
