Most people are familiar with bogs, but they’re not all the same.

Minnesota has a wide range of peatland communities. Ecologist Courtney Kerns has walked (and at times staggered and hopped) many miles through Minnesota peatlands.

She joined us this morning to give us a preview of this Saturday's event (4/9/22 at 1pm) at the Forest History Center in Grand Rapids - Bogs and Beyond.

You’ll learn that these ecosystems are more diverse and amazing than most people realize.
