Most of the wetland vegetation consists of mixed swamp forest, with cedar swamp predominating. In the eastern part of the wetland, however, is an open fen complex covering about 50 ha. It consists of a mosaic of sedge meadows, shrub thickets, marl-bottomed pools and ‘islands’ of stunted cedar and larch trees. The fen has a high plant species diversity and provides habitat for a number of provincially and regionally rare plant species.
Location: Stoco Fen is a wetland complex located 3 km east of Stoco Lake (6 km from the village of Tweed).
Park Facilities: There are no visitor facilities available.
