Kettle Pond Conservation Park
The retreat of the glacier 10,000 years ago left many 'kettle holes' in the Madison area. A pond surrounded by woods provides habitat for a variety of wildlife in this small park. Features 0.4 miles of trails. Neighborhood volunteers are helping with an ongoing oak savanna restoration project. Exotic trees and shrubs are being cut to allow for sufficient light levels to foster oak regeneration and wildflower growth. Native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers are being planted. Increased plant diversity promotes a diverse community of wildlife species.
