“riverbanks, flood terraces, upland forest, and streams”
Turkey Run Park preserves a vertical slice of the Potomac Gorge ecosystem. A unique combination of flora and fauna makes a home in the park's riverbanks, flood terraces, upland forest, streams, and underground seeps. Trails in Turkey Run Park cross through several of the distinct habitats that make up the Potomac Gorge ecosystem. The Potomac Heritage Trail also runs through the park. Wildlife sightings change with the seasons. Wildflowers bloom and warblers migrate through the park each spring. Woodpeckers call loudly all summer from a thick, leafy canopy. Fall colors paint the park's hardwood trees red and yellow. Occasional snowfalls in winter reveal the comings and goings of many small mammals.
