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. Eleocharis rostellata dominate area with Dasiphora fruticosa, Solidago ohioensis, S. uliginosa, Cladium mariscoides, and Salix candida. Some sedges "stripping" with peeled fibers on culms. Located in pocket overlooking Long Lake. Beautiful. Good for Poweshiek possibly. Frangula thicket below and woodland to the north. Larix laricina in area. Muhlenbergia richardsonis in area too!
