NECPS Bog Walk Rescheduled for July 22 - May 28, 2017 by Webmaster
The June 10th Bog Walk has been cancelled: Due to the extreme volume of rain we have been getting recently, the boardwalk at Ponkapoag bog is flooded and inaccessible.

Mike Stiffler has offered to host the bog walk in July, when, hopefully, it should be a little drier, and he's hosting a barbecue and the silent auction after!

Ponkapoag Bog Walk July 22, 9:00 AM: Meet at Ponkapoag Golf Course parking lot, 2167 Washington St., Canton, MA.

The boardwalk gets slippery, so wear your sturdy boots. Bring bug spray, drinking water and sunscreen.

You will see a number of species at Ponkapoag Bog, including S. purpurea, D. rotundifolia, D. intermedia, U. inflata, U. purpurea, U. intermedia, U. gibba, U. radiata, and U. macrorhyza.

Our next regular meeting will be on  August 12 for Show planning and discussion.
