Project Summary

The Seney Wilderness Area (SWA) and its imbedded Strangmoor Bog National Natural Landmark (SBNNL) of Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Schoolcraft County) represents a relatively intact fire regime, with benchmark stands (or "pine islands") of mixed red pine and eastern white pine in the SBNNL.
