Colchester Bog

Colchester Bog was described by Hub Vogelmann in part 1 of Natural areas of Vermont in 1964. At the time, the area was privately owned. Today, the Colchester Bog Natural Area is owned by the University of Vermont. A floating boardwalk extends into the bog in the southeast corner of the natural area.

I visited the Colchester Bog Natural Area on April 20, 2023. Much of the area is impenetrable this time of the year (due to high water) but the day's observations included numerous species from the heath family (Rhododendron, Kalmia, trailing arbutus, leatherleaf, wild rosemary), purple pitcher plant, and various emerging ferns.
