The Wilderness Center podcast on Cedar Bog


Written by Curator Emeritus Bob Glotzhober

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by the staff of The Wilderness Center in Wilmot, Ohio for their series of podcasts about the natural world. You can listen to the entire podcast or download it on Sticher by selecting podcast # 139. Three staff from the Wilderness Center, Joann Ballbach, Gordon Maupin and Gary Popotnik, start off the podcast by each discussing with the group a selected species. In this case, they chose the Southern Bog Lemming, the American Sycamore tree and the Tamarack tree. It was an interesting discussion, which lasted for the first 19 minutes of the podcast. Lots of good information about these three species. Unfortunately, they linked their discussion of the Tamarack to my interview by saying that Tamarack grow at Cedar Bog Nature Preserve which they do not. I would have corrected that but my interview was taped at a separate time, so I never heard the comment until I listened to their entire podcast.

My interview centered on the wonders of the Ohio Historical Society’s Cedar Bog Nature Preserve in Champaign County. The entire podcast runs for a total of 52 minutes. I had a great time interacting with the three folks from the Wilderness Center and sharing my love of Cedar Bog and a bit of information about this unique site. Listen to the podcast, and let me know what you think.
