RESEARCH
The research portion of the class has been identifying the plants in the SBG Orange-trail Beaver Pond and the SBG Annex Beaver Pond. This will continue year around for several years to discover all the plants at these and other sites, how to identify them when they are not in flower or fruit, and how to estimate their distribution and abundance.

There are lots of other wetlands close by, from storm-water retention basins to large marshes and ponds of various ages. By surveying them over several years, we should be able to identify suites of plants common to local wetlands and perhaps those peculiar to specific types of wetlands.

How easy is it to create a wetland community from scratch? Are there plants or practices that might give a struggling wetland a second chance? How does one introduce appropriate plants? These are just some of the obvious questions at this the discovery phase of the course.
