This Bog Garden In North Carolina Is Like An Enchanted Storybook Forest

One of the most unusual city parks in the state of North Carolina features a bog. In case you were wondering exactly what a bog is… it’s one of the four main types of wetlands. The other other three are swamps, marshes and fens. And then, there is the bog: a highly diverse ecological environment that involves, among other things, pools of standing water or a wetland that develops peat. This, of course, is an overgeneralized explanation.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
