At an elevation of 1,800 feet, Hawley Bog resembles the cold bogs of Canada. Come learn the history of the area and visit this pristine peatland owned by both The Nature Conservancy and the Five Colleges. An early fall walk before the frosts should enable us to see all three types of Massachusetts carnivorous plants: sundew, pitcher plant, and bladderwort. Autumn is also the time to see cottongrass, a glacial relict species!
