Savage Fen SNA
This is a visit to Savage Fen Scientific and Natural Area in Savage Minnesota.
Savage Fen is located below the bluffs along the Minnesota River on the south side. It is a unique example of one of Minnesota's rarest plant and animal communities. It is a calcareous fen, meaning that it is a wetland adapted to growing in the highly alkaline water seeping out of the bluffs. The wetland acts like a sponge, absorbing this water and holding it there supporting a unique assembly of plants and animals. See more here: www.dnr.state.mn.us/snas/sna00999/index.html
