The Dame Forest contains a mix of wetland and upland habitats, including beaver marshes, seeps, vernal pools, and Appalachian oak-sugar maple forests.

Along the Sweet Trail that runs through the Dame Forest and other adjacent properties, 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.
