Hidden Hollow Orchard and Wildlife Sanctuary
Bordering the urban area of Louisville, Hidden Hollow Orchard and Wildlife Sanctuary takes up 50 acres of woodland containing an abundance of wildlife and a variety of wildflowers.
As many as 296 species of birds have been seen in the sanctuary, including owls, towhee birds, bobwhites, quail, wild turkey, and bluebirds. Such other creatures as salamanders, cave skinks, beaver, deer, groundhogs, and turtles have also been spotted onsite.
Certain flowers and plant arrangements have been put in place throughout the sanctuary to enhance the habitat of the creatures, such as brush piles for turtles' shelter, butterflyweed which offer nectar for butterflies, Thunberg Lespedeza bushes producing seeds for bobwhite quail and nectar for bees, and lichen which provide soft nesting material for hummingbirds.
