A short stroll over boardwalk and path through a wetland natural area. Hidden in the woods off a narrow dirt road on a hill southeast of town, Eshqua Bog is a wildflower lover’s delight. Owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy and the New England Wild Flower Society. This compact forty-acre wetland site preserves an astounding array of botanical life—from marsh marigolds and common bunch- berry to the beauty of rare orchids. Photographers, connoisseurs of native plants, and hikers who would like to immerse themselves in nature’s wild profusion are drawn to this fen teeming with species that harken back to post-glacial New England.
