North Branch River Park extends along almost 3 quarters of a mile of river, with important wetlands and a rich diversity of wildlife. The park includes the following features:
A older stand of hemlocks that provide shelter for deer in the winter
Classic riparian buffer
Nationally registered wetlands
Relatively young stands of hardwoods and softwoods
Additionally there are some unusual geological features including some sharp ridges, several small intermittent and year round streams. The wetlands are at the bottom of a long hillside and built up into a series of ponds by industrious beavers.
