The Dame Forest contains a mix of wetland and upland habitats, including beaver marshes, seeps, vernal pools, and Appalachian oak-sugar maple forests. These natural communities provide excellent habitat for waterfowl, wading birds, turtles, and amphibians. Along the Sweet Trail that runs through the Dame Forest and other adjacent properties (see Trail Info below), you can experience many different natural communities and catch glimpses of wildlife including beaver, great blue heron, belted kingfisher, osprey, wood frog, and several species of turtle.
