Description

The Fix Unit is mostly former agricultural land that is now fallowed and will be made more consistently wet by a series of water control structures and a pump to be installed in 2016. This unit is adjacent to the Michigan Nature Association’s Swan Creek Plant Preserve which has abundant American lotus.

Flora & Fauna

The eastern section has an interesting wet prairie community of blue-joint and reed canary grass, Phragmites, and characteristic wildflowers in these types of habitats including boneset, grass-leaved goldenrod, swamp milkweed, spotted joe-pye weed, and others. Deer, muskrats, eagles, hawks, and pollinators habitat the area.
