CAS UPCOMING EVENTS
- July 20th 7:30am – 11:30am – CAS Field Trip to Kent Bog and Triangle Lake Bog -Join Canton Audubon Society members on a field trip to Kent Bog. From the Ohio DNR website “Kent Bog is a living relict from the Ice Age. In glacial times, the boreal forest, including tamarack, dominated the landscape far south of northern Ohio. Today, however, Kent Bog supports the largest, southernmost stand of tamarack in the continental United States.” As time permits will be travel a short distance to Triangle Lake Bog. From the Ohio DNR website, “Triangle Lake Bog is one of the finest and least disturbed sphagnum kettle-hole bogs in Ohio. The vegetational zone surrounding this glacial kettle lake follows the classic pattern of boreal bogs.” We will be meeting at 7:30am to car pool as much as possible due to limited parking available at the site of the former Wildlife Garden. Address is 4202 Portage Rd N.W. ,North Canton. For directions click here
