    this bog is protected by many laws since it is one of the 3 or 4 remaining TRUE sphagnum bogs in the state...

    Bogs around my house (W. NC) are thought to be as old as 10,000 years. A sales rep from my peat moss supplier told me their bogs in Canada are thought to be 15 to 20,000 years old!

    Awesome pics. Did you catch any glimpses of other CP's like invasive U. inflata?

    Plus where is that bog? I'm going up to washington this summer to meet my cousins in Vancouver and it would be spectacular to go there

    Peace - sorry man, i dont want to give out the location of this bog....its really really hard to get to anyway, it means alot to my friend who took me there, and well it would hurt him alot to see anything damaged...
    I didnt see any utrics yet, there are some there but we had a stunted season where stuff was late to wake up, maybe if i go back out in the end of the season there will be some floating around in there.

    Lamb- after looking a bit more into it
    Yeah that seems like kalmia microphylla afterall. Thanks alot

    Can a mod move this thread to the conservation station section?
    as it is protected heavily by laws, and is one of the few remaining sphagnum bogs here in Washington State...Would like to protect this bog as much as possible....Wish i would have been able to get some photos of the utrics there, but nothing had started to really show up yet.

    Excellent photos! Believing there have to be more than 3 or 4 sphagnum bogs remaining in WA, I searched and found this:

    http://www.kingcounty.gov/environmen...gnum-bogs.aspx

    That looks like good reading if you want to know more about the origin and evolution of bogs. Bogs must be at least as threatened there as anywhere, if not more so, because of WA's nasty combination of big time agriculture, big time developers and politicians sold out to each. Bogs are as easily destroyed by taking the water as by taking the land.
