Cat-tail Marsh


This list was compiled in September, 2011.  The marsh is in the area we call Upper Wetland.  It is approximately one-half acre in size and is kept wet year-round by a small spring-fed stream.

The current list is partial.  We will continue to add to the list as new varieties are observed and identified.  The list is currently maintained as an excel spreadsheet, but we hope to extend it to a database format.
