The Warren Woessner Bog Boardwalk is a true gem within the Warren Nelson Memorial Bog. The boardwalk project was completed through hours of volunteer work and funded partly by grants, donations from our membership, and a very generous gift from Warren Woessner and Iris Freeman. This 900 foot boardwalk cuts through a gorgeous stretch of Black Spruce Bog giving the opportunity for folks of all ages and ability levels the chance to experience and feel the magic within a Black Spruce bog! The boardwalk was officially opened in October of 2018 after many months of work by tireless volunteers, who we cannot thank enough. This boardwalk is a great tool for visiting school groups or other civic groups and an attraction for local residents and visitors alike. Most folks would never think of bushwhacking into a bog, but this boardwalk allows you to explore an amazing habitat without the fear of getting lost, breaking a leg, or getting your wet feet. Thank you Warren and Iris!
