Clematis WMA

Clematis WMA provides important winter habitat for white-tailed deer, coyotes, and a variety of furbearers. Snowshoe hares, ruffed and sharp-tailed grouse are also common sights. Occasionally you’ll see elk and black bears.

The karst topography provides hibernacula or dens for garter snakes. Aspen is the dominant tree species, with chokecherry, Saskatoon, and bog birch.

It contains several wetlands dominated by sedges and bulrushes.

Karst topography

A landscape that is characterized by numerous caves, sinkholes, fissures, and underground streams. Karst topography usually forms in regions of plentiful rainfall where bedrock consists of carbonate-rich rock, such as limestone, gypsum, or dolomite, that is easily dissolved. Surface streams are usually absent from karst topography.
