Joaquin Miller Park in the Oakland Hills is Oakland's second largest open space park. Relatively undeveloped, Joaquin Miller Park still hosts a great diversity of native fauna and flora. Native bees are in abundance, as are many kinds of native butterflies. Unlike many other Oakland parks fallen trees are not removed, so native bees, wood-living beetles, and other insects that live under dead wood find resources they need to survive.
