Seney Wilderness Area

Project Description

The Seney Wilderness Area (SWA) and its imbedded Strangmoor Bog National Natural Landmark (SBNNL) of Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Schoolcraft County) represents a relatively intact fire regime, with benchmark stands (or "pine islands") of mixed red pine and eastern white pine in the SBNNL. The matrix of the Demonstration Area is wetland, and consists of one of the largest and best examples of a patterned fen in the Lower 48 states.
