On a hike into Flat Lake via our usual trail, I observed seedlings of jackpine at two sites, both under burnt trees. Jack pine seedlings were not observed under other burnt trees, but a methodical search would likely reveal more sites and there may be more next year. - DP.
Near Flat Lake. About a dozen jack pine seedlings were present under this burnt tree. Other species: mostly Gaylussacia baccata (black huckleberry)
A single plant of Artemesia stellariana (beach wormwood) was observed at this site, but not elsewhere on the Conservation Lands.
Some seedlings appeared severely drought stressed.
Mountain sandwort (Arenaria groenlandica)
on burnt ground near Flat Lake.
A second site near Flat Lake.
