Woodland Bog Interpretive Trail

click to enlarge Bog interpretive sign

The bog woodland interpretive loop is a surprisingly beautiful and fascinating exploration. 11 Interpretive signs will guide you through this special ecosystem, plan time to learn how plants and animals have evolved to live over a pool of acidic water!

Thanks to Oyster Jim for designing this clever trail hand-built to preserve and highlight features of this special wetland. This trail is constructed like a narrow grave-topped raft, so it is bouncy to walk on. Be advised, visitors with poor balance may not feel steady.

Please take special care on this trail to avoid damaging the sensitive plants in the bog, footprints take years to heal.

Thanks to Andy MacKinnon /the UVIC Field School for their help in research and monitoring, and the Clayoquot Biospere Trust for sign funding.
