Herrick Fen State Nature Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Who knew that carnivorous plants could be so cute? Who knew that beavers could cause such trouble? As pretty and peaceful as this place is, you may not notice the battles raging all around you.

This fen harbors the tiny insect-eating sundew plants, state endangered bayberries, and rare sedges. While only careful observers will notice many of the rare and endangered species here, the tamarack trees are easier to spot."
