Natural Areas




Lakes and Ponds


Lake &Pond

These aquatic ecosystems are natural or manmade freshwater bodies that are permanently inundated and dominated by floating or submerged aquatic vegetation. The soils are level to nearly level, very poorly drained sandy or organic soils underlain by sand or clay. These communities are dominated by fish and Benthic Macroinvertibrates and also provide breeding habitat and cover for birds and other vertebrates.
