Wildlife and rare-flora sightings are a favorite sport in Sherwood Forest. Because of our commitment to the Dark Sky Initiative, on a clear night the sky reveals thousands of stars. Thanks to our many acres of green area and connection to other natural forests in the area, an occasional bobcat, fox, coyote, muskrat or bear can be seen crossing our roads and paths. We’re surrounded by amazing sounds: the haunting calls of whippoorwills at dawn and dusk, hoots of owls all night, and almost always some chirping frogs. Deer and crows are everywhere.
