Pete's Bog : Leave it


Bogs are unique ecosystems. If you leave them alone, they will continue to be special places, with benefits for wildlife, clean water, flood control and lots of other things. Some bogs will even continue to grow, forming mounds of peat with different types of vegetation growing on top. Other bogs form floating islands of peat. Some of those islands even had trees growing on them!
