Field trips to Quakertown Swamp and Tannersville Bog, April 2016
Go Erin and Robert!
So much fun gaining our swamp legs.
Collecting data on hydrology, vegetation, and soils.
Discussing expectations before hiking to Tannersville Bog.
The highlight for Reilly was definitely the gyttja.
10 meters deep!
And more coring…
Is this a wetland?
Sieving the mud.
Boardwalk at Tannersville.
No bog bodies today.
Looking good Erin.

Vernal pools at Quakertown Swamp.
My kind of boardwalk….
