Our wetland pools are beginning to take off! Creatures such as insects, macro invertebrates, and amphibians have found themselves at home in the wetland pools.
Recently a few flats of aquatic and emergent plants were planted in our wetland area. In efforts to help these plants become established, a thin filament was added between a couple different posts. In the pictures below, if you look closely, you can see the filament. This is to dissuade the geese from eating the plants that have been recently added.
Plants included in the most recent plantings were:
Bristly Sedge (Carex comosa)
Broadleaf Arrowhead (Sagittaria latifolia)
Pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata)
Soft Rush (Juncus effusus)
Soft-stem Bulrush (Schoenoplectus tabernaemontani)
Woolgrass (Scripus cyperinus)
