Joni Johnson, botanist with the U.S. Forest Service, visited Wrangell Thursday afternoon to give a plant walk through the nature trail at Volunteer Park. Johnson is from Petersburg, but said she works in both the Petersburg and Wrangell ranger districts. The nature trail goes through the Muskeg, a wetland ecosystem common in Southeast Alaska. According to Johnson, 40 percent of the Tongass National Forest is made up of wetlands like the muskeg.
