Kuser Bog is a special place in High Point State Park.
The walk around the bog is an easy mile and a half, which includes the board walk through the bog where sundews can be found growing in the moss. The woods are filled with native rhododendron, white cedar, mountain laurel, hemlocks, white pine and spruce as well as other plants. We will be in search of birds that breed in the area.
Meet Karyn at 8:15am at the natural area parking lot.The park gate opens at 8:00am.
Upon entering High Point State Park from Route 23, follow the signs for the monument. You will pass the lake on the right and the interpretive center on the left. Just past the center there will be two left turns at the head of the lake.Take the 2nd turn, which will take you to the parking lot at the end of the road. There is a sign on the left side of that road, which points to the natural area.
This will be a half day trip. It is suggest that you bring water.For further information, contact Karyn at: firstname.lastname@example.org
