Molly Bog

Molly Bog is a classic example of a northeastern kettlehole bog, illustrating textbook zonation from open water to evergreen forest.  The bog complex involves a two-acre pond skirted by four distinct zones; each characterized by a particular community type. In addition to the bog, this 35-acre natural area includes a spruce-fir swamp and an adjacent upland hardwood forest. Although somewhat remote, the area has been studied by UVM scientists and is frequented by local naturalists and researchers.

This is a very sensitive area, and therefore it is not open for general public use.  If you would like more information, please contact the University of Vermont's Natural Areas Center at 802-656-4055.
