Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center Shares Snapshots of Bog Wildlife

 

MCEEC Wildlife Camera

National Natural Landmark and a true scenic wonder, the Tannersville Bog stands out as one of the most unique natural attractions in the Poconos. The site’s thick bed of sphagnum peat moss hosts beautiful plants such as calla lilies, orchids, gold thread and pitcher plants. The site is also home to elusive animals including bear, coyote, fox, bobcats and river otters.

Because of its fragile nature, the Tannersville Bog can only be visited during regularly scheduled walks conducted by Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center (KCEEC), but trail cameras throughout the preserve offer rare glimpses of after-hours activity.

See snapshots of coyote, playful river otters, bobcats and other animals of the Tannersville Bog!

Public Bog Walks are underway. For more information, call (570) 629-3061. Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center is located on Running Valley Road near Bartonsville.
