Sedges not Cattails allowed here

Cattails are being replaced by sedges at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Just a few years ago this wetland area was full of cattails, but to protect the bog, which contains many rare plants and is an endangered ecosystem itself, Dunes curators have been replacing cattails with native Sedges.

Beaver, frogs, herons, muskrat, and much other wildlife depend on this beautiful bog.
