Lincoln Memorial Picnic Grounds is habitat to numerous species of plants and animals. The pond was reconstructed in 2012 and is stocked with bluegill, catfish and bass. Geese, wood ducks and turtles also use the pond as a safe place to rear their offspring. The grounds also have butterfly gardens established for monarch butterflies to use during their migration season. Natural resources are important to the Forest Service, even in a small area. Natural resources include the trees, flowers, ferns, grasses, mammals, birds, insects, water, soil and air, all of which are needed for a healthy and productive ecosystem.
