15 - The Blowdown

Gleason, Wisconsin 54435, United States

Created By: UW-Madison


The blowdown is a unique feature at Kemp. Created during a storm in 2000, notice the obvious break in the once continuous hemlock forest. This natural opening is a wellspring of diversity – tree snags provide wildlife cavities and insects for food; a wide variety of plants and trees, including elderberry and raspberries, attract birds and mammals.
