2nd Post Spring Semester

 

-I would classify the natural community of my place as a mixture between woodland and wetland. The area surrounding the stream is mainly composed of pine trees and low lying shrubs, aligning with the woodland schema. The stream that runs through my area feeds into collective pools which in the summer undoubtedly sustain grasses and other wetland vegetation.

-Since my last visit much of the snow in my area has melted. In addition the ice that covered much of the stream was melted, showing how the spring temperatures have affected the area. Using the biofinder I determined that my place is in an area of high biodiversity, this being apparent through the dark grey coloration.
