Event description
Join West Creek Conservancy for a hike at one of of the few extant peatland tamarack bogs in Ohio, a new addition to the Conservancy.

About this event

In 2021, West Creek acquired one of the few extant peatland tamarack bogs in Ohio. The property is located in Portage County and has been referenced in scholarly studies of peatlands of Ohio for decades. The protection of the property has been a high priority and creates the potential for restoration of its hydrology.

This hike presents a rare opportunity to see the bog, which is surrounded by a wooded upland buffer and agricultural fields that will be converted to successional upland buffer, further enhancing the ecological functionality and diversity of the bog.

Location: The bog is not open to the public. The location will be included upon registration.

The hike is approximately 2 miles. This hike will have a moderate terrain and rubber knee-high boots are recommended.
