Description

I cannot figure out what this kind of plant this is. Is it a rush of some kind? It grew in clumps from about 5-20 feet into the beaver pond next to the trail.

This doesn't look like Rhynchospora alba which is a bit more delicate. I have never seen R. alba grow in such dense clumps. I think you were on the right track with a rush but I can't tell without a close up shot of the plant. Ah... I see where there might be some confusion---the common name. Rhynchospora is a sedge, despite the common name that your source may have used.
