Cranberry Bog



Buckeye Lake Cranberry Bog in the background

Located literally "on" Buckeye Lake as a natural, floating phenomenon. Each June, a public tour draws hundreds of visitors to the island, transported by boats and volunteers. Led by naturalists along board walks, visitors view rare orchards, carnivorous plants and unspoiled ecosystems.

Cranberry Bog held an Open House once a year in June but at this writing it is unclear if that event still takes place. For more details contact the preserve manager, Greg Seymour at (740) 763 - 4411 or via e-mail: greg.seymour@dnr.state.oh.us
