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.
