At first sight, Soggy Bottom consists of about 65 acres of pasture, forest, and a seasonal wetland with two stock watering ponds. Upon closer investigation: geologic soil types, subtle topography, seasonally changing plant cover and water flow across the property all provide the basis for endless observation and study.
