Pauline Murdock Wildlife Management Area

This wildlife area is 68.5 acres of boreal northern forest, with areas of river and flood plains. It consists of seven different ecological habitats: red maple-hardwood swamp, hemlock-hardwood swamp, successional old field, northern white cedar rocky summit, hemlock-northern hardwood forest, pine-northern hardwood forest, and successional northern hardwood forest.

Because much of this land had been settled, and then fallen into disuse, fruiting shrubs and other flora which creates hospitable and protective nesting sites remain. This encourages American woodcock, cedar waxwings, turkeys, quail, and kingbirds, along with hawks and owls.

Well-known for Eastern bluebirds.
