About Boger Bog
This 38-acre site is comprised of six different natural communities, including a mesic silt loam prairie, oak woodland and a sedge meadow. In fact, Boger Bog is not really a bog at all (an acidic wetland community), but is the exact opposite, a grass-dominated alkaline wetland community called a graminoid fen. Fens support calcium-loving plants like big and little bluestem and Indian grass, and provide habitat for frogs and turtles. The oak woodland sits atop a moraine and is dominated by red and white oaks that provide sanctuary for deer, turkeys, raccoons, possums and birds.
