The Silent Giants Conservation Easement covers approximately 18 acres of woods and wetlands in Three Oaks Township. Two thirds of the property is considered forested wetland, but it also contains somewhat drier, mesic woods and a nice array of native wildflowers, including the state-threatened Prairie Trillium. This type of forest cover and wetlands are important stopover and breeding sites for many species of birds. The wetlands provide a particularly important habitat for aquatic invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, and aquatic vegetation. Though not directly connected, the property lies between two streams, both tributaries of the Galien River. This conservation easement enhances the ecological value of this corridor in the watershed.
