The Locher Tract is a 378 acre area that was once the Locher family’s farm and where they mined shale to sell to the brick-making plant across the river in Glasgow.  Birdwatchers will enjoy a variety of common and unusual species including Pileated Woodpecker, American Goldfinch, Prothonatary and Prairie Warbler.  Deer, turkey, rabbits, and other small game thrive in the woods and grassy areas, while the pond is home to waterfowl and beaver.
