Crane’s Mill is proud to have been established as a certified wildlife habitat. The certification states that, “This habitat is certified in the National Wildlife Federation’s worldwide network of mini-refuges. Because of the owner’s conscientious planning, landscaping, and sustainable gardening, wildlife may find quality habitat.” The walking trails around the community abound with birds, fox, deer, raccoon and muskrat.
