Orchids to Owls
Sax-Zim Bog in Photos
Friends of Sax-Zim Bog celebrates the diversity of the bog biome and the diversity of ALL who visit the Sax-Zim Bog. FOSZB works to protect and safeguard land and wants all visitors, regardless of color, age, gender, sexual orientation or ability, to feel safe as they enjoy the Sax-Zim Bog. We condemn racism in ALL its forms. Just as a rich biodiversity strengthens ecosystems such as Sax-Zim’s peatlands, the wonderful diversity of human experience strengthens our community of “bog buddies” who work together to support FOSZB’s land preservation and education efforts. We respect the individuality of each member of our FOSZB staff and board, and we are committed to be an organization free of any kind of discrimination based on race, color, religion, age, gender, disability, national or ethnic origin, politics or veteran status. FOSZB will seek equity and inclusion for all. We are all working for the same goal: To Preserve & Protect the Sax-Zim Bog for Future Generations of Birds and Birders. Let’s get to work!
Creek Chubs are a fascinating species of minnow in which the males build ridge-pit nests out of small stones they move in their mouths. You can see this in the slow motion video. Join Friends of Sax-Zim Bog Head Naturalist Clinton Dexter-Nienhaus on this outing to a small creek in the Sax-Zim Bog. Learn the difference between male and female Creek Chubs and why the males battle over nests.
Leave your legacy in land and protect diverse bog habitat with your gift! With any donation of $1,000 or more we’ll add your name to an acre of bog. Over 480 acres have been protected with your generous donations. In addition to purchasing single tracts of land as they become available, we are also working to connect corridors throughout the bog, as key species such as Connecticut Warblers and Great Gray Owls need large tracts of undisturbed land in order to thrive
