The Nature Conservancy’s Tannersville Cranberry Bog is a dedicated Natural Historic Landmark and a local wild treasure comprised of over 1200 acres of protected landscape and unique bog/wetlands

Join us on this Pocono Heritage Land Trust (PHLT) sponsored walk with local naturalist, educator and PHLT volunteer, Don Miller to explore the autumn upland woods and wetlands edge on the Fern Ridge Trail and newly protected Weiss farm tract of the Tannersville Cranberry Bog Preserve.


Set aside the game controllers and smart phones, come with a guide from PHLT and enjoy a walk in the unique Tannersville Cranberry Bog.  The Fernridge Trail is a single loop trail that is ideal for introducing young and, not so young, family members to the joy of an autumn walk in the woods.  The trail rises through an open oak forest.  As the path flattens out along the top of the ridge, chestnut oaks grow in abundance.  The path follows an old road and eventually proceeds down a slight hill to run along the edge of the bog.  River otters, deer, and bears inhabit this area.  Young explorers can find evidence of their passing by examining the foot prints in the thick ooze of the bog.


Bog walks can be wet and muddy.  Wear boots or sturdy shoes.  No strollers. Rain or shine. 


This event is free, donations accepted.
