2020 Venture Vermont: Go to and find a hike you’ve never done before. Go hike it!

all right, i am triple dipping on this activity, because i needed to go to a wetland and look at sedges and i also wanted to look up trails in the area of East Montpelier as an example for a kid who was working on the cadette eco-trekker badge.


it turns out that chickering bog is not a bog at all, but a rich fen, and the main difference between a bog and a fen is that a bog gets all of its water from precipitation, but a fen is fed by groundwater.

this isn't a great picture of this plant, because it's been dry out, and they'e past flowering, but these are purple pitcher plants. they're fun because they are carnivorous.
