Millgrove Access Wildlife Area
Located 4 miles northwest of New Sharon, this 620-acre tract of diverse habitat contains one of the few remaining segments of the North Skunk River that is unchannelized. Oxbows, marshy floodplain, and lowland timber are only part of this natural area. The southern portion of this area contains upland timber, predominately oak and hickory. Several acres of native prairie grass have been established, as well as, a five-acre shelter-belt. This area was frequented by Indian tribes and later became the site of the first mill in Poweshiek County.
