Flint Woods Preserve

The Flint Woods Preserve features the largest remaining old growth hardwood forest in Delaware. The area provides critical woodland habitat for many nesting birds such as Louisiana Water Thrush, Scarlet Tanager, and Wood Thrush. During spring and fall migration the woodlands are an important stopover area for a wide variety of other Neotropical songbirds.  The towering oaks, tulip, hickory and American beech trees provide the shade and soil quality required by woodland plants such as showy orchid, round-lobed hepatica, nodding Trillium and a large variety of ferns. An extensive trail system allows program participants to experience this majestic forest ecosystem. Facilities include a colonial road, a pavilion with picnic tables, and fireplace.
