    herenor- sadly, i must say that most of those boglands have been drained and filled...i dont see anything on there directly listing the number of true bogs. What i showed in this group of photos is what is one of the last TRUE sphagnum dominated areas that havent been drained, filled, or modified in any way. the only thing added to this bogland is a trail going straight by it...The friend who took me has researched bogs in this area and has never found more than the 3 or 4 that he knows of, which are now all very closely protected.
    The area i live in, here in Pierce County had many sphagnum bogs....infact one of the smaller peatlands behind our house leading into the forest was just recently drained and filled last year as to make room for more housing developments......

    That plant with the pink flowers is called Western Bog Laurel. It's a look alike to labrador tea and it's important, if you are harvesting labrador tea not to confuse it with Bog laurel as it is toxic. No worries though, anyone with an ounce of botanical wit can distinguish them quite easily.
