Volo Bog State Natural Area

As the only open-water tamarack bog in Illinois, this wetland is a botanist’s dream. Several kinds of orchids, pitcher plants and Indian pipe can be observed from the sturdy boardwalk that provides easy access into this unique site. It would be a mistake, however, not to raise your eyes, for many species of songbirds linger here during migration. Summer is also a good time for such species as Sandhill Crane
