Woodland Mounds
Preserve


 
Before European settlers came to this area, Native
Americans lived along the rivers of Warren County.
They were part of a culture of people who dwelled in
villages located along most of the major watercourses
in Iowa and the eastern half of North America. They
did not leave a written record, instead they left a
variety of their cultural objects such as stone tools,
pottery and earthen mounds that help show us how
they lived. Evidence indicates that these people lived
successfully in this area for thousands of years.
Purchased with a grant from the Wildlife Habitat
Stamp Fund, Woodland Mounds Preserve contains
185 acres of timber that provides habitat for many
types of woodland wildlife, including many neotropical
migrant birds such as warblers. An additional
140 acres are leased for public access.
