Dog’s Bane growing by the Fen.  Dog’s bane has been used to make a strong cordage by many native american groups. You can see some orange colored aphids on the stem of this plant.

Here’s some Virginia Creeper.  It’s sometimes confused with poison ivy because it vines its way up trees and turns red.  But as you can tell it has 5 leaves instead of poison ivy’s 3.

Here are some rose hips that are growing by the camp road near the fen.  Rose hips are edible and are high in vitamin c.
