Changes in Hydrology and Substrate

The warmer weather has accompanied many changes to the Centennial Woods pine stand. Since the area is on a slope, I noticed that some of the organic layer was missing from the top of the hill but was especially present near the meandering stream. The trail was saturated with water, which I assume is caused by the freezing/thawing cycles of late winter. I hypothesize that the trail will become less clear as the water flows across the landscape and blurs the trail and the natural land.
