Small fen located between two lakes. Remnant patch of prairie fen with majorly altered hydrology due to historic marl mining. Water table lowered dramatically, which results in much drier soils. Very marly area dominated by prairie grasses. Grass dominated area in north western portion of prairie fen. Some shrub encroachment by Frangula alnus sapling in area; about 7m east of shrub encroached edges; grasses in area include Andropogon gerardii, Sorghastrum nutans, Bromus pubescens, and Poa pratensis; other species include Dasiphora fruticosa, Pycnanthemum virginicum, Rudbeckia laciniata, R. fulgida, Lithospermum sp. and Solidago altissima; ground moist but not wet; marly under top layer.
