Natural Site Characteristics
This park is built on an island in the Mississippi River. This particular island was historically used by the Woodland Indians for trading, hunting, and rituals. Some examples of large Indian burial mounds are still present in the park. Today the island is home to dozens of species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Wildlife and bird watching are popular activities on the island. Research is currently being done on the turtle nests in the marsh.
