We can expect to see waterfowl such as geese, wood ducks, mallard ducks, great blue herons, and green herons. There will be a verity of songbirds and mammals such as raccoons, muskrats, and possible mink in the wetlands. The camera is used in the local schools for educational purposes.

The Murrysville Community Park (MCP) wetland area was built with Pennsylvania DOT funding to replace wetlands lost during the widening of Route 22. Through the efforts of several volunteers there is now a completed walking trail. The Valley Hiking Trail is 1.5 miles long and winds from the Sears house on Wiestertown Road through woods, clearings, down into the lowest part of the valley, over tributaries of Steels Run and to the high plateau with a view of the ball fields below and wooded hills in the distance.
