Oftentimes, you look out your window at Radwyn Apartments with hopes of catching a glimpse of a bird or colorful butterfly passing by. There's no chance of that happening until spring, but you won't have to wait for too long because warmer weather is on its way. If you're really into admiring the nature's creatures, venture to Natural Lands Trust's Sharp's Woods Preserve, which many native species call home.

The 27-acre protected area in Berwyn is covered with marshes, timber stands, and meadows, making it a place where many animals flock. Take a stroll along the preserve or expose the kids to the outdoors and teach them a thing or two about nature. Be on the lookout for painted turtles, Northern redback salamanders, red foxes, chickadees, and woodpeckers, among other creatures. In the summer, you might spot a goldenrod, lobelia, or an aster. If you'd rather go at it alone, follow the one-mile unpaved trail, which is shaded by trees.
