Species Diversity

Rounding the corner, observe the variety of trees and shrubs, all of which actually thrive here in the sandy soils. Try to locate some of the common ones such as pitch pine, low bush blueberry, juniper, and red oak.

Early in the fall, you can locate all of these plants by their distinguishing features such as the three needle bundles of the pitch pine tree, the large blue berries on the blueberry bush, the tiny bluish berries on the juniper tree, and the small acorns and pointy tips on the leaves of the red oak.
