Outdoor adventure awaits you and your dog just three miles north of Adair Village in South Monmouth. There, you’ll find the E.E. Wilson Wildlife Area, a puptacular 1,788-acre expanse of undeveloped open space where you and your leashed dog can explore. The park’s roads are closed to vehicles, making it an easy and quiet place to hike with Fido. You’ll see tons of different habitats and maybe even some wildlife! Birds of prey, upland birds, waterfowl, deer, rabbits and beavers are all commonly seen on the preserve. Bird watching and fishing are pawpular park activities in the spring and summer. Check out the E.E. Wilson Interpretive Trail and learn about the area’s wildlife and ecosystem. The park is open year-round and there is a small fee for parking.
