Hike to Altona Panhandle forest- ROUGE PARK

Nonnan RW BlackbirdNoonan Beaver pondNoonan painted turtleNoonan flicker

Larry Noonan’s hike this past Saturday attracted 25 people to the Altona Panhandle Forest in the Rouge. They came across two beaver ponds replete with beaver, several bird species including a flicker, a painted turtle…

In a third pond they saw goldfish, presumably dumped there by a well meaning person…but this doesn’t do much good as the goldfish in a small pond eat the frog eggs and tadpoles ultimately eliminating these from the pond.
