Keith II property

The Keith II property is located within the Rumsey Moraine. The moraine is a unique landscape characterized by its knob-and-kettle topography, which formed as the glaciers retreated approximately 13,000 years ago. Hummocky mounds (knobs) alternate with wetlands depressions (kettles), which support a wide variety of bird life and waterfowl. In fact, 91 species of birds are known to occur in the nearby Rumsey Ecological Reserve.

The Keith II property contains native aspen forest, grasslands and ephemeral wetlands, conserved through conservation easement agreement.
