Kent Bog is one of a handful of places in Ohio where small cranberries (on the state’s list of threatened plants) make a stand. It is also home to what is probably the largest, southernmost stand of tamarack trees in the continental United States. Ancient history and modern ecology are both on display here: Visitors can see what’s left of this 12,000-year old bog from a boardwalk made of recycled plastic.
