July 16th 2016 Field Trip to Clayton/Glassboro FWMA

The Glassboro/Clayton FWMA is a ~3,000 acre tract of public land that surrounds the headwaters of the Little Ease, one of the major Maurice River tributaries.  Extensive red maple wetlands are punctuated with relic upland ridges that support an interesting mix of Coastal Plain species. This wet forest was used only lumbering and charcoal. Most of that activity ceased in the 1930’s.  The State started management in the 1940’s, resulting in the forest present today.  The land use history and landscape provides opportunities for many unusual Coastal Plain wetland species and the swamp is known to support mistletoe, swamp pink, and Polygala mariana as well as a few other interesting species. We will focus on developing a species list for this largely inaccessible landscape.
