Enjoy the ambiance of a green urban stream corridor at Fischer Natural Area! Fischer is along the Spring Creek Trail and next to Rolland Moore Park. Flickers, songbirds, raccoons and foxes are common residents- watch for them! This site was purchased by the City from Gene and MaryLynn Fischer in 1977 and named after them.
