Cedar Bog Nature Preserve

Cedar Bog Nature Preserve is the largest and best example of a boreal and prairie fen complex in Ohio. It has many rare plants and animals, as well as excellent orchid, prairie, and woodland wildflower displays. An almost mile long boardwalk guides the visitor through this preserve of Ohio's recent to Ice Age past. Mastodons probably fed here, and all of the Indian cultures of Ohio lived in the area. The Cedar Bog Visitor Center opened in April 2009. The building includes exhibits that are a prelude to walk in the fen, a classroom, restrooms and a gift shop.
