Miller Woods is home to over 400 native plant species, largely due to the diversity of habitats from the oak savanna to rich wetlands. This particular wetland is invaded by non-native grasses like cattail and phragmites, which the park will be working to eliminate in the coming years and replace with native vegetation to provide better homes to our local wildlife.
