Many large white pines hug the shoreline of Bunganock Pond, along with maples, paper birches, and other deciduous trees. Explore the marshy coves, and enjoy the view of forested hills to the west. The pond is shallow, as evidenced by the abundance of pond vegetation, especially water lilies. Most floating-leaved pond vegetation, such as fragrant water lily, bullhead lily, water shield, and bladderwort, cannot grow in more than about four feet of water, though some less common aquatic plants can tolerate deeper water. Prominent fish species: largemouth bass, yellow perch, and chain pickerel.
