Glacial Legacies

Glaciers shaped the New England landscape and gave rise to its soils and several landform types. In this field study, you will learn how glacial movement created features such as kettle bogs and eskers, and what types of plants are able to grow in these habitats. Hiking along sandplains and bogs, we will identify tree and understory species, such as chestnut oaks (Quercus montana), pines (Pinus), and swamp azaleas (Rhododendron viscosum) growing in different soils and hydrology. We will also discuss forest succession on this easy hike.
