Interactive tour of a freshwater wetlands habitat that was overrun with invasive phragmites. The phragmite reeds took over for the native plants, thus reducing the native habitat for the native plants and animals. This tour takes you through a project that is aimed at restoring and rehabilitating the native habitat for endangered bog turtles and other wetland species through the use of light grazing and other methods. Explore the different regions of the wetlands and some of the key species.
