Habitat: Mostly open prairie fen with strong prairie component. Bisected by Little Goose Creek. Some large swaths of Frangula alnus being treated by Michigan Nature Association. Weedy areas develop further downstream where fen narrows. Highly variable in regards to health of fen with some patches appearing pristine and other complet Phragmites australis stands. Private property is being heavily encroached by shrubs and turning the high quality fen into a patchwork of degraded/healthy fen. Prairie dominated prairie fen on west of fen; pockets of shrub encroachment; grasses, sedges, and Asteraceae dominate ground cover; common species include Spartina pectinata, Andropogon gerardii, Dasiphora fruticosa, Thelypteris palustris, Euthamia graminifolia, and Thalictrum dasycarpum. Ground moist but not wet; about 15m west of creek.
