Interesting Facts

Cedar Bog is actually a fen, not a bog. Bogs clog, fens flush! 

It’s not grass you see in the bog, it’s sedges. Grasses are round; sedges have edges! 

Yes, the site has rattlesnakes; no, you more than likely will not see one during your visit.

The water never truly freezes at Cedar Bog. It remains at 55 degrees year round!

Cedar Bog hosts the annual Boo in the Bog, a non-scary, interactive night hike for young children and their parents.

2012 marks the 70th anniversary of the creation of Cedar Bog Nature Preserve!
