Stop 12 - Flood Plain Grassland

Look on the east side of the river. You should notice the area made up mostly of herbaceous plants with few woody plants. This area is used by muskrats. If you look along the banks you may find muskrat dens
and see tracks in the mud. Deer also use this area for grazing. The vegetation on this type of flood plains is influenced by the seasonal water fluctuations. This 164 acre property was donated to the Cheshire Land Trust by Betty Ives.
