Jamestown, NY – Pitcher plants, Sundews, cranberries: these plants don’t grow just anywhere. They need the special conditions that can be provided only by a bog.
On Saturday morning, October 11, 2014, nature photographer Gary Cuckler will lead an Audubon Center & Sanctuary field trip on an exploration of a floating bog.
A visit to the Allenburg Bog is deemed significant enough to be included on Audubon’s 2014 Bucket List of awesome natural history opportunities to experience before one “kicks the bucket.” The outing is planned for peak fall foliage time.
Also known to some as Waterman’s Swamp, Congdon’s Pond, and Owlenburg Bog, the Allenberg Bog is located on the border of the towns of Napoli and New Albion, New York, in Cattaraugus County. This unique and fascinating 390-acre refuge is a jewel of the Buffalo Audubon Preserve System.
