Tips for birding the Ironweed Trail
The large meadow area traversed by the Ironweed Trail is a great place to see Eastern Meadowlarks and Tree Swallows (there are plenty of nesting boxes for the latter). The patch of woods along this trail contains Maple, Oak, and Hickory trees.
About Glacier Ridge Metro Park
Glacier Ridge was named for the end moraine or glacial debris left behind when the glaciers retreated some 12,000 to 17,000 years ago. Much of the 1,037-acre park was once covered with farmland. Visitors can traverse a boardwalk through the Honda Wetlands Area or climb a 25-foot observation tower to see waterfowl and other animals.
