Natural history: My site has been protected for a really long time. It has always been dense in trees. The only big human impact on this place is fishing. There was also a time where the pond had overflowed and the town had to bring in sand to stop the flooding.
Phenology: This nature preserve is very rich in evergreens. They are mostly all grouped together with little distance in-between them. There are medium sized trees that are all a similar height and then a new generation of trees under them which are the same height. As you get closer to the river there are more maple trees and birches. There is also more smaller vegetation.
