Bogs are unusual places that are much more common in Maine than in Massachusetts. Bogs are characterized by highly acidic soils and waters which set the stage for plants and animals that can adapt to these unusual conditions. Poutwater Pond is a National Natural Landmark and Massachusetts' first Nature Preserve, home to stunted trees and shrubs as well as unusual orchids and insect eating plants. Lots to see and do in this exotic morning exploration.
