About the Event
MATTAPOISETT BOGS TOUR
Restoration Ecologist, Sara Quintal from The Buzzards Bay Coalition will tour participants through “The Bogs” on Acushnet Road on Saturday November 4 from 10 to 11:30 am. The Bogs is a gateway to more than four miles of trails through the woods, along a scenic freshwater swamp, and around 50 acres of cranberry bogs. The Bogs were created in the 1930s and operated until the fall of 2011. Although these bogs are now retired from commercial production, native cranberries continue to grow wild here. Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition to take a walk and enjoy the outdoors. Meet at The Bogs parking lot at 141 Acushnet Road. Because of active construction, this tour will be limited to 20 people and will be filled on a first come first served basis.
