Menyanthes trifoliata (buckbean) occurs in the upper part of the Lawrencetown marsh
Lawrencetown Brackish Marsh
Many of our brackish marshes have been lost or are threatened. These marshes host a high diversity of flora and fauna. We will explore the brackish marsh in Lawrenctown Lake that lies across the road from Lawrencetown Beach on the eastern shore. Remnants of Acadian dykes criss-cross the marsh. Be prepared for wet footing and mosquitoes. A description of the site as documented in 1975 can be viewed here
