45.4001, -85.464
Site Overview: 
One of two basins on Beaver Island, Michigan where Kapp analyzed pollen and the character of the sediments to correlate the water level in the Michigan basin, sedimentation and forest history. Three pollen zones from this post-Valders peat bog and Barney Lake reflect a late-glacial forest, dominated by spruce followed by the development of the mixed northern hardwood forest including pine.
