During field days at Fond du Lac Resource management we had the opportunity to explore a few different wetlands sites. This particular site was by far a unique stand of beautiful white cedar and balsam fir.A closed canopy of white cedar, fallen mature trees, ferns, and mosses cover the forest floor, shading the shallow, cold water trout stream.

In a nutshell, it was truly an amazing experience to witness white cedar and brook trout inhabiting the  same swamp.
