The Krusch Preserve has been identified as a distinct mapped area for the iNaturalist program. It catalogs a growing list of species observed on the Preserve includes birds, wildflowers, fungi, and bees. The species (and their photos) reported so far can be found at this link.

iNaturalist is a social network of naturalists, citizen scientists, and biologists built on the concept of mapping and sharing observations of biodiversity across the globe. Amateurs can submit their photos and tentative identifications, which then must be confirmed by experts in each field: flowers, vegetation, birds, insects, etc.
Their app, used to identify wildlife, plants and fungi, can be found at this link
