The Alpine Junction site is a forested wetland preserve located along New York State  Route 224 near the Village of Alpine Junction.  The site is adjacent to Cayuta Creek a listed trout stream that drains to the Susquehanna River. This preserve is 50 acres in size including roughly 15 acres of forested wetlands. This wetland is dominated by red maple (Acer rubrum) green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) and yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis). The preserve’s emergent wetlands are dominated by a variety of species including tussock sedge (Carex stricta), blue flag (Iris versicolor), American bur-reed (Sparganium americanium) and sensitive fern (Onoclea sensibilis).

Despite (or perhaps because of) livestock grazing in much of the emergent wetland the fenced in portion of the wetland exhibits a tussock sedge - hummock/hollow community with a lot of microtopography.  We have partnered with Binghamton University to develop a study design for this portion of the preserve to provide an opportunity to evaluate the results of grazing on this wetland type.
