Endangered Species

Taltree is home to endangered plant and wildlife species. We have almost 60 rare plant species, many of which prefer wetland areas that stay consistently moist. Examples include Gentiana flavida (yellow gentian) and Oenothera perennis (small sundrops). For wildlife, Taltree is home to the endangered black sandshell mussels and Trumpeter swans.
