I visited another area near my house that looked like it had potential to have CPs growing there. It is in Oakland County, MI. This site was along a stream that flows between two lakes. It is nestled in a valley between two glacial moraines. It is on private property.
I-75 cuts the stream in half and a trophy home development ($300,000 plus) has been built where I am sure additional fens once stood. They did leave a few swamps which they call nature preserves. On the other side of the freeway there are huge homes located on the hills overlooking the stream. Fortunately no one has developed the low lying areas, yet.
This fen was not as diverse as the one I described in my previous post. I was only able to find Drosera rotundifolia and Utricularia intermedia. The area was very beutifull with the stream, fens and cedar swamps. I can only hope it stays that way!
