Flora and Fauna

Hartman Creek State Park lies in the middle of the north-south tension for plant ranges. The tension zone was identified as the north or south range limits for 182 species. As a result Hartman Creek State Park has the richest diversity of habitat types of any property in the Northeast Region and quite possibly the entire state of Wisconsin. Some of the habitat types include red pine plantations, northern forests, oak forests, old farm fields, old orchards, prairies, grasslands, marshes, and small ponds and lakes. There is also a relatively rare calcareous lake within the property boundaries. The soils are predominately sand and glacial outwash.
