The land has approximately 60 acres of forest which includes oak bluffs and poplar thickets. Mixed in the landscape are vast hazel standings, willow bogs, chains of wetlands, and a myriad of wild plant and animal life. We’ve spotted our neighbor the beaver with an impressive den in the middle of the pond. Falcons screech their ancient song, grouse can be a sudden surprise flying from the long grass, and deer and coyote tracks can be discovered. Dennis Lake is teaming with bird life, from red-winged blackbirds to cranes. Other welcome traditionally symbolic sightings include eagles and black bears.
