303 meters (994ft)
Mostly open prairie fen with strong prairie component. Bisected by Little Goose Creek. Some large swaths of Frangula alnus being treated by Michigan Nature Association. Weedy areas develop further downstream where fen narrows. Highly variable in regards to health of fen with some patches appearing pristine and other complet Phragmites australis stands. Private property is being heavily encroached by shrubs and turning the high quality fen into a patchwork of degraded/healthy fen. Weedy shrub encroachment area in southwestern portion of prairie fen; about 3m south of stream; Frangula alnus is abundant. Other species in area include Spartina pectinata, Solidago altissima, and Calystegia sepium; ground moist but not wet due to shrub cover.
