Lake Gerar is near the north end of the boardwalk in Rehoboth. I've found some interesting plants there, and in 2014 that I learned that some were planted as part of a restoration project. I was told that the surrounding park used to be mowed right to the water's edge, creating an ideal spot for geese. Now there's a wide unmowed border. Without the a clear path to the water the geese don't like it, and the park paths are much cleaner.
Although these may not be truly "wild", I'll leave them on the site. Some are native plants I haven't seen anywhere else!
