awesome! jealous.. ive yet to find our native rotundifolia..
whoa, I cant believe I missed this thread. great pics! Reminds me when I found stands of rotundifolia only several feet away from the ocean on the islands of Maine.
Well, that spot was right by the Old Inlet breech... visited a couple of months ago and it was one of the only spots that was not completely flattened in that area.
Did look pretty bad though, a lot of salt water overwashed the area and flooded it.
There were numerous dunes protecting it with only the immediate ones around it left.
I found out it is fed by an underground aquifer, hopefully the life there survives and the fresh water balances out.
There were toads, snakes and a fox den there with other bog plants and whatnot.
All the marshes in the area are completely gone... as are pretty much all the dunes and the habitats they protected.
I do have a few years worth of pics of that part of the Fire Island Wilderness, I'll have to update this thread with those once I get the chance!
Oh man that is terrible
