Inscription. Here, on the dry side of the path, the plants have created a thicket, an almost impenetrable spot of woods. The thicket is full of sharp thorns, prickers, poison ivy, berry bushes and greenbrier.

Dry thickets provide a special nursery for birds and mammals. Just like the marshes, these areas are often the first targets of development.
