The Nations Bridge Park Nature Trail was designed to allow park visitors an opportunity to learn about trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and other interesting features that occur at Nations Bridge Park. Trees, shrubs, and other unique features have been marked so you may learn something about each species as you pass it. The markers indicate a number and name of each plant or area which relates back to the brochure. You should be able to identify unmarked trees and shrubs in the timber once you become familiar with the leaf shape and structure of the trees. Wildflowers are also abundant throughout the forest floor.
