June Bog Walk - May 15, 2016 by Webmaster
There will be no regular June NECPS meeting. In it's place we will be holding a bog walk at Ponemah Bog, Amherst, NH on Saturday, June 11 at 10:00 am.

Plans are to meet in the parking lot of Panera Bread, 590 Amherst St (Rt101A), Nashua NH 03063 at 10:00 am. Then we should car-pool as the parking lot at Ponemah bog is very limited. The location of Ponemah Bog is just 10 min Northwest from Panera Bread, Ponemah Bog Parking Rd off Rhodora Dr.
 
It is an easy hike with board walks, no long boots necessary (unless it's flooded after a heavy rain).  You will see lots of S. purpurea, D. intermedia, D. rotundifolia, and U. cornuta.  The morphological diversity of S. purpurea there is amazing.  S. purpurea with different shapes and color patterns co-exist there which is a MUST SEE.  It will be about 1-1.5 hr hike, depending on how much time we want to spend looking around.
