Description

Seen in Silver Lake shallows, the signs along the trail identified this as Arrowhead, however I noted these arrowhead specimens did not have as sharp corners down at the broad end of the arrowhead shape, making them seem somewhat different from other arrowhead pictures online.

Description

What Dr. Pojar identifies as American Bulrush (scirpus americanus), and what inaturalist calls olney's three-square bulrush (Schoenoplectus americanus), was spotted growing along the trail around Silver Lake in a small wet area. Sharply triangular, erect leaves seem to be the indicator, please correct if wrong.
