Cedar Bog Nature Preserve

Cedar Bog Nature Preserve is the largest and best example of a boreal and prairie fen complex in Ohio. It has many rare plants and animals, as well as excellent orchid, prairie, and woodland wildflower displays.

An almost mile long boardwalk guides the visitor through this preserve of Ohio's recent to Ice Age past. Mastodons probably fed here, and all of the Indian cultures of Ohio lived around here.

The Cedar Bog Visitor Center includes exhibits that are a prelude to walk in the fen, a classroom, restrooms and a gift shop.
