Habitat includes 48 acres of wetland and 15 acres of upland. In 1999 about 44 acres of wetland was disked in late September. A monotypic stand of river bulrush existed. The wetland remained dry through the fall and winter. In late April, 2000, a prescribed burn was conducted. Most of the organic matter and exposed tubers were burned. By October, about 50 percent of the wetland was again covered with bulrush. The remaining area contained smartweed.
