NATIVE PLANT EDUCATION
FROST FISH CREEK PLANT IDENTIFICATION INITIATIVE
As you walk along Frost Fish Creek’s 1.1-mile walking trail, you’ll find that plants have been tagged with their scientific names, common names, and native / non-native / invasive status. The Chatham Conservation Foundation has undertaken this plant identification effort to bring awareness to the critical role that native plants play in our Cape Cod ecosystems and the risk that invasive species pose once introduced.
Please see the following pages for descriptions of the plants at Frost Fish Creek:
