Comments
General Comments: 
Numerous fens with liverworts and club moss. Channel at top of the meadow starts halfway between transect 1 and 2. There may be an old trail along the meadow margin. Below the 2nd transect there are multiple small channels. Meadow is one of the steeper and wetter ones we have seen.
