The Folsom Pond Focus Area is a series of interconnected wetland habitats including open marsh, shrub swamp, forested swamp, and forested bog, along with all the surrounding upland forest. The wetlands occur along a mile and a half stream corridor that comes from the east eventually draining into Balch Pond. The site supports one rare natural community type, a pitch pine bog, and one exemplary common community type, a mixed tall sedge fen. These communities along other habitats at the site support a suite of rare lepidopterans (moths and butterflies).Pitch Pine
You can access this wilderness area from the northwest corner of Balch via canoe or kayak.
