Wildlife Cover Boards at Miller Woods

While exploring Miller Woods, take a moment to examine the Wildlife Cover Boards. The boards are either metal or wood with a carpet remnant nearby, and have a handle so you can lift and see what critters may be underneath! Reptiles may use the material to stay cool and to hide from predators.

Use the map below to find the locations of all twelve boards. Below, you will find animal descriptions and the photos to identify the reptiles hiding under or around the cover boards. Reptiles may not always be hiding under the boards… but you never know what you’ll find!
