Fairwood Forest is a biologically diverse 4-acre forest patch along the 5800 – 5900 blocks of Fairwood Avenue in Glenham-Belhar, a strong inspiring neighborhood in northeastern Baltimore City. It’s home to 23 species of trees and is part of an important hawk flyway where thousands of hawks are sighted each year. It is a unique place in an urban neighborhood where residents can see a wide variety of wildlife including red foxes, raccoons, opossums, bunnies, deer, spotted salamanders, and many birds. Fairwood Forest is a place where local children can experience nature – an opportunity that often is denied to those who grow up in an urban environment.
