Seven springs and many seeps feed the stream which flows though our woods. These waters, open all year round, are protected by riparian borders which harbor sedges, grasses, and ferns. Wild creatures depend on this resource for refuge, food, shelter as well as a corridor for travel. The current and temperature is constant, water meanders, erodes channels, waters converge and continue on to empty into the Apple River, to the St. Croix, to the Mississippi, ultimately to the Gulf of Mexico.
