Welcome to the wildlife section of our website. This page provides Town residents a behind the scenes look of urban wildlife and how they utilize our natural areas for shelter, food, and a place to raise offspring. Focusing primarily on the two sections of the Plumtree Run, the Public Works Department has begun compiling a group of photos documenting the variety of wildlife that thrive in the same space we live.
