In addition, the surrounding area offers opportunities for wildlife activities like photography, fishing for bass and other game fish in the well-stocked strip pits, and hunting for quail, turkey, small game, and deer. The Mined Land Wildlife Areas (15,000 acres) offer grasslands, woodlots, and waterways that will stir the senses and bring a tingling rush with each splash of water or flurry and flutter in the shadows and nodding grasses.
