Last year, we learned about our local bogs here in Illinois and Indiana. Now we are crazy about them! Soon we will be going "bog walking" in Estonia, this September. So, let's visit our own bog here, near Wauconda, Illinois.
We will meet at the parking lot at 9:30 am for a moderate pace hike along one of the most unique wetlands in all of Illinois, which hosts an unusual assortment of plants and animals. Outlying areas feature rolling hills, woods and open prairies. At 11:00 am, let's join the one hour nature tour to learn about the bog, with one of the nature center's volunteer naturalists.
Volo Bog is located in Ingleside/Wauconda, in North Illinois. We will hike and explore for 3+ hours. Then, afterward let's stop at the Bobby's Barrel Inn for lunch.
