View Full Version : Damage to browns bog preserve
I recently went to Browns Bog in Ohio, with another member (Death66) and we found that some big trees had fallen across the boardwalk. There is no damage to the bog itself, the damage is to the trees at the entrance of the bog. I remember about a month ago that there was a tornado over Shreve Oh, and this damage is very consistent with tornado damage. It was dark when we were there so I can't say how bad the damage is.Good thing is that the preserve is managed by the Nature Conservancy, nature.org and it looks like they are taking the trees out.
If anybody else knows anything about this, let me know.

I am free next Saturday for a road trip. If possible, I may stop in at the Shreve Bog and take some photos and do an overall check of the area. I hope the main section of the bog is ok. I would hate to see the populations decrease.

I stopped by the bog today. Only saw the one tree down and section of the boardwalk removed for what looked like repair. The bog itself looked just fine. All overgrown with tall weeds and a nice swarm of mosquitoes.
I will post some photos later.

Here is a photo of the same tree that ozzy posted. Its a bit dried up now and has yet to be cleared. This was taken 2 weekends ago.
