Fireman’s Pond Walk-About
September 19, 2022 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
We will begin our Southeast Chapter’s 9th year with a visit to a little-known botanical treasure-spot in Atlantic County. Fireman’s Pond stands near the Nacote Creek spillway and Mill Pond in Port Republic and hosts a delightful mix of specialized plants, including horned bladderwort, wild rice, seven-angled pipewort, and others. It is easily accessible — you can park just yards away — and is best appreciated in mid-September.
We will circle the pond at a leisurely pace, identifying the plants as we go, and also explore the edge of the brackish creek nearby.
Come join us and bring your camera. (Binoculars and a wildflower field guide may also be helpful but are not necessary.)
See the map at the link below. Fireman’s Pond is the small, semicircular water body on Mill Road to the right (east) of Mill Pond. Plenty of parking is available on the road around Fireman’s.
In the map below, the location is not where the pin lies but at the lower right pond.
