Exploring the Mystery of a Spruce Bog
Spruce bogs are a natural habitat found in Northern Alberta. They are, literally, the half-way world between land and water. Spruce bogs are very unique ecosystems because the acidic soils create harsh conditions for plants and animals to live in. The sphagnum and peat mosses that make up the forest floor are so thick that it is like walking on a water bed. Come explore the mystery of a spruce bog with Forest Educator, MJ Munn-Kristoff. She will take you on a virtual tour of the spruce bog habitat and identify the vegetation, insects, birds and animals you will find there. Join us for a two-hour adventure while keeping your feet dry.
