FEN Hike 8/27/11

August 21, 2011

We will be exploring a unique environment at Seven Lakes State Park, this Saturday, 8/27/11, 12pm-3pm……the FEN.

A Fen is a Spring fed area with a limestone base that produces a unique place that only certain plants, flowers and life survive. Carnivorous Pitcher plants, rare Orchids and many special plants and insects.

Be prepared for an inch or two of standing water on these Fens. Not muddy areas, but standing Spring waters. GORTEX boots or some foot protection is recommended, or wet feet are just fine. 🙂

You can download more details and a map to where we are meeting at the Link provided here:    Seven Lakes FEN Hike
