Gothamist explores Ridgewood Reservoir!

4. Birch-Maple Swamp.jpg

"One of the most amazing things about the place is how dense and varied the vegetation has grown over the past twenty-five years, with some 175 species of plants providing shelter to 125 species of birds, as well as raccoons, possums, lizards, and rabbits. Another fun fact: It's home to one of the few birch forests in the area."
