Ashford Forest Preserve Flora and Fauna

There are many kinds of plants and creatures living in the greenspace. Many of them come and go with the seasons, but they are all dependent on the community to help them have a safe place to be. Unfortunately, there are also many invasive plants that must be controlled so the native ones can thrive. The gallery below shows just a small number of the living flora and fauna in our greenspace.
