The vegetation of the site is a complex mix of mature forest, marsh and floodplain, next to disturbed areas with conifer plantation and weedy vegetation, on a landscape with much history of human use—typical of a natural area in an urban setting. The mature forests of the slopes and bottomlands are valuable natural habitats, readily accessible from campus and therefore important for teaching and research.Printable Map
