Mature Coastal Hardwood/Aquifer Wetlands

A large - although threatened - area of mature coastal hardwood forest: tall, straight-trunked trees and a noticeable absence of vegetation in the understory signal rich soils and make this woodland a unique place to observe what some of the original relatively undisturbed forests along our shoreline looked like.  This area includes a large red maple swamp along the northern boundary of route 154 that is in close proximity to our town's aquifer (underground water resource).
