Cartier Lake in the Petawawa Research Forest
2018 June 25
After failing to find any orchids in the kettle bog on the Brent Road, I returned to check out the Arethusa population in Cartier Lake in the Petawawa Research Forest. I found a few, but not many. I think the water level in the lake has been rising over the last several years -- there is a beaver dam on the lake's outlet -- and it is drowning their habitat. Or maybe, I should have been there a week previous.
