At this point the white loop trail travels across low lying land. The land here gently slopes downward slowly loosing elevation until collecting in the wetland. Depending on the time of year this area can have high standing water or be very dry. This moist habitat is the perfect place to look for frogs! While standing on the bridge looking east, the trees to your left are white mangroves. The presence of mangroves is another sign of a wet habitat. If you turn to your right the trees in this area are covered in white or greenish spots. These spots are called lichens. Lichens are a special organism made of fungus and algae cells. The cells of the fungus and alagae form layers that work together to make one organism. Lichens absorb many pollutants from the environment around them making lichens good indicators of pollution.
