Navarino Cedar Swamp State Natural Area

Project Managers: Mary Ann Feist
On 7 July 2018, the Botanical Club of Wisconsin conducted a botany blitz at Navarino Cedar Swamp SNA in Shawano County, Wisconsin. Two community types within the SNA were surveyed—Black Ash Swamp and the Northern Mesic Forest. Separate species lists were made for each community type. Links to the species lists are provided below. Ten people participated in the botany blitz which lasted from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

What is a research checklist?

Research checklists are pre-compiled by biologists. This is a very controlled method for building a species list, which allows for specific specimens to be linked to the species names within the checklist and thus serve as vouchers. Specimen vouchers are proof that the species actually occurs in the given area. If there is any doubt, one can inspect these specimens for verification or annotate the identification when necessary.
