Transect Data | Water Data

  Avery Pond, located in Preston, Connecticut, is 25.7 acres and has been developed with homes on the western side. The pond can be accessed by a state boat launch and no outboard motor restrictions apply, although an 8 mph speed limit is enforced.

This pond supports dense growth of Robbins' pondweed (Potamogeton robbinsii) across its entire bottom. However, no other submerged species were recorded during our September 2005 survey.  It appeared that other plants already had died back. White water lily (Nymphaea odorata) grew in large stands in a cove on the eastern side of the pond and along the edges of the southern end. Yellow water lily (Nuphar variegata) was scattered through the white water lily and occurred in several small patches along the northeast shore of the pond.
