Join Moose Hill's teacher naturalists every Friday for a free 1-hour hike around The Bog at Patriot Place in Foxboro!

This 32-acre cranberry wetland system and wooded area features a half-mile scenic walking trail. It's amazing how much wildlife you can see here, including Great Blue Heron, Wood Ducks, deer, fox, and turtles! There is also a wide variety of plant life such as water lily, swamp white oak, eastern hemlock, and serviceberry.

The Bog is the last remaining active cranberry bog in the Town of Foxboro. Come slow down and take a look with us. Our teacher naturalists will also teach you a few skills that you can use on your next nature adventure!
