The preserve is wholly bounded by streets and is located in a residential area. That being said, it is a quality area and we come year-round to see the changes in plants and views. We've seen deer, coyotes, rabbits, raptors, herons, and smelled skunk, so there is wildlife here. This is a great place to see wildflowers and during the summer the grasses grow over head high, which gives a totally different feeling.
