Butterfly sighting

Jun 17

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Clam Lake Bogs
Ashland County

Includes two radically different bogs adjacent to each other on Forest Road 182 just east of Twin Lakes, with the western bog a typical Black Spruce-Tamarack muskeg suction bog savannah, and an immediate transition eastward to a swampy Dwarf Birch bog where Frigga Fritillaries and Dorcas Coppers live. One bog on Wilderness Road (FR 195). The 4th bog is where we saw most of the Bog Fritillaries--the westernmost part of the County Highway M/County GG junction bog.
