Field Notes
There are many plants, but dead grass all around them, along with fallen tree parts. I could hear birds, smell wet plants and soil, and see lots of trees. The Ground was saturated. I was sort of surprised it hadn't dried from the day before.
Supporting Evidence

The plants in the quadrat did not have long stalks like that of the Japanese Knotweed.

The leaves on the plants in the quadrat were not even close to the ones on Japanese Knotweed.

Japanese knotweed is a large plant, none of the plants in this quadrat grow past an inch.
