2016 Wetlands Plant Primer
September 10, 2016 @ 12:00 am
This is a Torrey Botanical Society field trip, but all are invited.
10 September (Saturday). Aquatic plant primer, for beginners but all are welcome. Abbott Marshlands, formerly the Hamilton – Trenton – Bordentown Marsh, Mercer County, NJ. Meet 10 AM at the Mercer County Roebling Park parking lot at Spring Lake, Hamilton, NJ. For information, directions and map, see www.abbottmarshlands.org. Take South Broad St. (NJ Rt. 206) in Hamilton to Sewell Ave.; at the end of Sewell, turn left and drive down the hill. In the morning, we will examine common wetland species in and around the lake, but Wolffiella gladiata, a NJ rare species, is likely. After lunch, we will visit a tidal marsh site, part of the northernmost tidal freshwater wetland on the Delaware River. The path in some areas may be muddy; be prepared for wet walking. Rubber boots or VERY old footwear are recommended for the tidal marsh site. Bring lunch, beverage, and insect repellent.
