Given this property’s location and hydrologic condition, its current primary function is as wetland wildlife habitat and protected open space. Currently the property exhibits high-integrity wetland habitats that are typical of the region (cattail marsh, swamp rose dominated shrub wetland, red maple forest). Wetlands provide many functions and values, including water quality protection, stream flow maintenance, flood protection, and wildlife habitat.
Property was donated by Cynthia Sheldon on October 30, 2006.
