Dr. Ned and Fay Dudney Nature Center Things To Do Parks or Natural Areas

UTC 083A

The Dr. Ned and Fay Dudney Nature Center, once known as the Davis tract, is one of the last remaining large undeveloped properties with quality wetlands. The 148 acre park provides a home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The site is an excellent habitat for migrant birds, such as Sand hill cranes, great blue herons, ibises, American egrets, great white herons, owls and various song birds, which use the area to nest and feed. Occasionally the endangered whooping cranes have been known to visit. Ducks, pelicans, shore birds and wading birds all enjoy the large isolated pond along Clear Creek. The site’s wetlands serve as a nursery for many species of fish. The wetlands to the east help to provide homes to mammals such as deer, bobcat, coyote, and raccoons.

Paved trails and several bird blinds provide an ideal birdwatching environment. Picnic tables and restrooms are also on site.
