Description

A fen is one of the rarest wetlands classes and contains a very high diversity of plant and animal life. In many cases, these plants and animals live nowhere else. Their unique makeup produces organic peat soil – sometimes as much as six feet deep – which acts as a natural water purification system. If you are a botanist or teach any type of biology, we’ll bet you’d like to get your students out here to study everything about Pearl’s Fen. It’s an amazing view of plants – flowering and otherwise. And if you take your time, you’ll be able to see some amazing critters and birds as well. Armed with your camera you can capture some amazing photos. Bring your friends or your children, and you’ll collect memories and stories for years to come.
