The North Springfield Bog sponsored by the Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society in Vermont is a boreal kettle bog, an artifact of the last glacial age 10,000 years ago.
The only source of water is precipitation as the bogs lacks any outlet for drainage. The bog’s water is acidic and lacks oxygen while the sphagnum mosses are the dominant plants forming a thick layer of peat.
Visitors are welcome to discover and experience one of the most natural areas in this region. They are invited to walk through the bog on a boardwalk to learn about the diverse plant life that exists in this extraordinary environment.
