The Orono bog boardwalk welcomed its first visitors of the year.
The boardwalk, in Bangor’s city forest, is jointly run by the city, the Orono land trust and UMaine.
The mile-long walk runs through a forested wetland as well as an open peat bog. Colorful signs along the way describe the plant and animal life you can see.
The bog walk is designed for folks to enjoy at their own pace, but guided tours are also available.
You can find out more at http://www.oronobogwalk.org/.
The bog walk closes in late November.
