Wet Meadow


This list was compiled in September, 2011.  The meadow is in the area we call Upper Wetland.  It is approximately 2-3 acres in size, partially riparian, and is wet for 2-3 months a year from a seep.  It lies just to the east of the Cat-tail Marsh

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.
