There was a very small mention of one of my projects in the local newspaper this week. Here is the link: A Akron Ohio News – County Council supports bog preservation projects – SSNL.

This is about 2 deals that Western Reserve Land Conservancy is helping theA ClevelandA Museum ofA NaturalA History with. The museum will own these two special places, while the conservancy holds permanent restrictions over bothA properties. These 2 layers of protection, as well as restrictions held by the state of Ohio, will ensure that no matter what happens in the future, these sensitive bog habitats will remain intact for future generations to enjoy and learn from.

One of the properties contains a sphagnum mat that you can walk on, then if you jump up and down, people 20 or 30 feet away will also bounce up and down from your movement. Really a cool feeling. You do have to watch out for the poison sumac though!
