    Tannersville Bog, PA Trip anyone?

    Hi guys and gals,
    I know there are quite a few of us in the tri-state area. I recently found out about this area and have not been there personally, yet. I live just south of the bog, about 35 miles. It is the southernmost boreal bog east of the Mississippi River. They have a board walk across the bog so you do not have to get dirty. I am planning on going up sometime soon, especially with the weather we have been having. It was 80 yesterday and almost again today. We have been in the 70's for over a week. My sarracenia are starting to put up a few flowers, so I imagine the purple pitchers at the bog will be too. They have designated dates for bog walks, but if we can get a group, we can go anytime. It appears the cost is $5 per person and lasts 2 1/2 hours.

    Please post here if you might be interested in going so I can get an idea and make plans.

    If you really want to see the flowers, you probably want to call someone. In-ground plants are heavily influenced by slow-to-warm ground temps and are usually a few weeks behind potted plants ime...

    I'd very much be up for it, particularly since I was unable to attend the last NECPS show and won't be in the northeast during the upcoming ICPS meeting... :P

    Speaking only for myself, it would very much depend on what date was being considered...

    I was thinking of planning the trip for late April, or May. That way plants would be in active growth, flowers should be up. I have not found any native PA CP's yet. Not due to lack of effort though. I have dragged my wife through enough swamps and boggy areas for her to go, "Oh no, not again, not another swamp." I have to take a trip to the pine barrens sometime as well. How about Saturday May 19th? Assuming we have enough people to get a group walk. I will call and find out how many people are needed.
