Access to the Wildlife Sanctuary property is restricted, however an observation platform next to the parking lot is open, and allows viewing of the habitats and wildlife. Binoculars or spotting scopes are recommended. The Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary consists of various upland and wetland habitats, most notably a regionally significant 102-acre forested wetland complex associated with Mill Creek. A prominent upland ridge in the west overlooks the Mill Creek valley. Habitats here include a large wooded ravine, several small streams, young forests, fallow fields, and a prominent ridge of low, densely covered shrubby vegetation ideally suited as cover for wildlife of all types. The expansive acreage of the Mill Creek Sanctuary and its diverse, high quality habitats create many opportunities for bird watching, hiking, and other passive recreation activities. Look for white-tailed deer, coyote, eastern cottontail rabbits, red-tailed hawks, and a wide variety of songbirds, which have all been observed at the Mill Creek Wildlife Sanctuary.
