Floating marsh around a pond
A floating marsh composed largely of Fen Sedge (Carex lasiocarpa) around a pond. This marsh grades into a shore fen and eventually into mixed conifer swamp. The total area is about 20 acres (8.1 hectares). A small stream which originates in the mixed conifer swamp flows into the marsh from the northeast. The marsh is drained by a convoluted boggy stream that eventually connects with the Poplar River.
''Carex lasiocarpa'' is a species of sedge known by the common names slender sedge and woollyfruit sedge.
