Mueller Marsh/Folly Mills Creek Fen Natural Area

Mueller Marsh/Folly Mills Creek Fen Natural Area, Augusta Co., Shenandoah Chapter

Mueller Marsh is a privately owned property that supports several acres of marshes and calcareous fens. It is the location of one of only two known populations of Menyanthes trifoliata, buckbean or bogbean, in Virginia. This and other disjunct and rare species have led to recognition of this area by the Virginia Natural Heritage Program. It is now part of the state system of Natural Area Preserves and has been renamed Folly Mills Creek Fen Natural Area.
