Lake Clark National Park and Preserve Prairies and Grasslands

Sedge is the dominant growth form in salt marshes along the Lake Clark/Cook Inlet Coastline. Farther inland meadows of grass become expansive, spreading out from shallow narrow drainageways. These communities are rarely flooded, though frequent rain and spring thaws keep the silty soils and peaty substrate continuously saturated.

In Chinitna and Tuxedni Bay, bears forage on essential grasses and sedges in tidal marshes.

The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
