Have you visited the bog boardwalk at Hidden Valley Nature Center yet? Join Hildy Ellis, Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District, for a tour of this unique ecosystem via a “floating trail.” Learn to identify some key bog plants and, perhaps, see some early dragonflies.

Hildy will discuss how bogs are formed, why the same plants that grow on the upland slope are so much shorter on the bog, and what makes the bog such a harsh, fragile - yet beautiful - environment.
