Elevation: 293 meters (961ft)
Habitat: Very long heterogenous fen with marked spots of high diversity and other large weedy zones. Fen elevated on norther and southern margins and depressed near central lakes (2). Bordered on north by woodland as well as on southern edge, but southern edge has a railroad and nearby row-crop agriculture. Typhaspp. appear to be heavily impacting fen. Carex stricta and Frangula alnus dominated area; soil firm and drier due to shrubs. Toxicodendron vernix and Dasiphora fruticosa common with some Zanthoxyllum americanum. Other species include Rubus pubescens, Thelypteris palustris, Doellingeria umbellata, and Galium boreale. Shrubby encroachment is ubiquitous in area.
