Cayuga Marsh

 Cayuga Marsh, a low-lying wetland, is part of a large, nearly pure cattail marsh (Typha latifolia) at the north end of Cayuga Lake. Most of the wetland is owned and managed by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation as wildlife habitat. Associated species include false nettle (Boehmeria cylindrica), marsh fern (Thelypteris palustris), spotted jewelweed (Impatiens capensis), and cut grass (Leersia oryzoides).
