First picture taken in Algonquin park Ontario Canada in a moist forest.

These pictures (Below) look almost identical to the other plant found in Algonquin although these are growing quite a bit taller and are surrounding a spring.

Just to show the surrounding plants and environment it was growing in.

It kind of reminded me of Lambs-quarter at first glance, although these leaves are more rounded.

It does look like Jewelweed, maybe Pale Jewelweed (Impatiens pallida)

This one is considered invasive in Ontario: Himalayan Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera)
