Hank Gianvecchio Natural Habitat Area
Imagine another time…
…when buffalo roamed the plains and there were no jet planes overhead. The sky was bright blue, the grasses green, and animal life thrived everywhere.
The year is 1702 and two young teenagers from a local tribe are hunting in the savannah lands in what is now called Bloomingdale Township.
They creep along, hiding in the grasses and hoping to spot their prey before being scented.
The bubbling creek hides their soft whispers as they peer across the flowered plain and feel as one with the earth.
Come visit our completely restored natural habitat and see for yourself. Listen to the birds warbling, the gentle breezes kissing the flowers, and imagine a time when beauty was everywhere you looked.
Visit this unique 3.5 acre parcel of land that was set aside by Bloomingdale Township to preserve our history and the beauty that once was.
