Not Your Everyday Bog

From the Land Bank’s description: Quirky land is a natural conservation priority; this land is quirky. Its wetlands form a honeycomb near the center of the property, and the rise and fall of the various elevations creates puddles of wetlands in unexpected places. A spagnum bog, pear-shaped and isolated, is its most special feature. Visible from the rises are the Vineyard Sound and the hills above Menemsha.

Getting there: Half a mile down the Lobsterville Road is a right turn onto a dirt road. Look for the sign.
