Associated Species: Elymus virginicus, Leersia lenticularis, Carex grayi, Carex lupulina, Carex lupuliformis, Carex muskingumensis, Carex tribuloides, Carex tuckermanii, Carex typhina, Polygonum pensylvanicum, Polygonum coccineum var. pratincola, Rumex verticillatus, Penthorum sedoides, Vitis riparia, Sium suave, Lysimachia nummularia, Stachys tenuifolia, Physostegia formosior, Cephalanthus occidentalis, Aster ontarionis, Boltonia asteroides var. recognita
Notes: Since this is the only (or possibly one of two) stands of swamp forest remaining along the Baraboo R. worthy of mention, and since it contains the easternmost &/or the only inland (i.e., non-Wisconsin, non-Mississippi River) stations of several of the species listed above, this stand is certainly worthy of preservation. However, diseased elms and other species have just been cut out, badly degrading it.
