Students in my Vertebrate Natural History class and I took a trip to Massawepie Mire to check out the world of the bog. This is a truly impressive place to visit - it is part of a conservation easement owned by the DEC and is open from September until June. During a few months of the summer, the area is in use by the Boy Scouts. Great place to visit and see pitcher plants and other bog plants.
