eBird Bar Charts by Season
Situated on Wolf Creek, it’s hard to believe this picturesque natural area is located within the city. Wesleyan provides a gathering spot for friends and family to meet and experience the outdoors just down the street.
From the north side of Wesleyan MetroPark, look out for herons foraging in Wolf Creek and recent signs of beaver activity. Popular scenic viewing spots include the pedestrian bridge over Wolf Creek and the paved trail beneath the railroad crossing. Head east on the Wolf Creek Trail and wind your way through historical West Dayton toward downtown.
For 50 years, Five Rivers MetroParks has maintained healthy habitats. The restoration on the Wolf Creek shows how healthy water ways encourage thriving wildlife. Head to Wesleyan MetroPark and follow the path behind the annex and playground area. Hike the path to the gravel bar along Wolf Creek and see how many species you can spot.
