Ell Pond

Ell Pond

Ell Pond is a kettle hole in Washington County, Rhode Island. It is surrounded by a swamp of red maple and Atlantic white cypress, and by steep granitic monadnocks. The small area contains communities of both hydrophytic and xeric plants, which makes it ideal for ecological research and education. It has been registered as a National Natural Landmark since 1974.
