Friends adds 40 acres to Boreal Chickadee Bog!
Acres for Owls program raises funds for Preservation
Generous Anonymous donation makes this purchase possible
THE BOREAL CHICKADEE BOG—NEW EAST TRACT (pink arrow) is 40 acres of beautiful mature Black Spruce-Tamarack bog. This is a remote site between Admiral Road and CR7, which is prime habitat for Great Gray Owls, Connecticut Warblers, Boreal Chickadees, Black-backed Woodpeckers and many other priority bird species that require mature bog. It’s close (less than a mile) proximity to the approved Sax-Zim Bog Wetland Bank is also important to us. This Wetland Bank Project will forever preserve 23,000 acres of the Sax-Zim Bog!
Access is difficult, so only the hardy may ever make it out to the Boreal Chickadee Bog. But this is one of our wilderness preservation projects that will not be developed at all…no boardwalks, parking pads, etc.
This purchase was made possible by a generous anonymous donation from one of our members and many other donations to the Acres for Owls program. Thank you!
