Gowing’s Swamp, Concord
Leader/Speaker: Cherrie Corey, Educator, Naturalist, Photographer
Gowing's Swamp is an enchanting, level bog complex set within a dramatically glaciated landscape, including a deep kettlehold bog in the southern end. This ancient depression supports such locally rare plants as Black spruce, bog rosemary, pitcher plants, bog laurel, and associated lichen and fungi species. Join our spring walk along the verdant shorelines, fields, and ridges that encircle Gowing's Swamp, enjoy its many beautiful vistas, seasonal flowers and fragrances, learn more about the bog's ecology, and discover the rich history of this very special Concord landscape. We'll meet in the Ripley Playscape gathering circle behind the Ripley School at the end of Meriam Road in Concord, MA.
