Quoted from the Hall's Pond Brochure at http://www.bu.edu/gk12/kris/worksheets%20and%20info/HallsPondBrochure.pdf: Between the pond and the upland path is a wooded wetland, where trees grow on mounds of soil and
water collects during wet seasons. Peat soil lies under the area. As this material decomposes, it releases natural oils as well as nutrients needed by small organisms. This oil on the water may look like pollution, but it is not.
