Oak Savanna

« Return to Gallery

Comprised of mostly black oaks, the oak savanna is a pre-settlement plant community that is at least two thousand years old. The oak woodlands serve as a gateway to the park, enhance biodiversity, and provide recreational opportunities. Paved and unpaved trails run throughout areas of Oak Savanna. In 2011 major restoration efforts took place within the oak savanna, including brush removal, canopy clearing, and eradication of invasive species.
