A large expanse of prime wetland habitat that is a main area gathering for moose to eat at, hence its name. Horse tail, pond weed, make up part of their aquatic diet, but also eat on grass, lichen, plants growing on the forest floor, peeled-off bark and leaves stripped with their bottom lip from willows, sallows and poplars. Otters and turtles also call the marsh home, eating on small fish, crab, and periwinkles. Beavers make the marsh their home as well, with a few lodges dotted here and there through out the marsh, and a large dam, at the far end of the marsh. Bears now and then, make their way into the marsh to try and take down a moose to eat, especially the young in the spring. The moose are normally placid, unless it's rutting season, or mothers have newborn babes at their side, you don't want 1,800 pounds of fury coming at you, if you get too close. Steer clear of them, and don't agitate them, and you'll be just fine.
