About Eshqua Bog
Eshqua Bog is a botanical wonderland of cold-climate holdovers—small pockets of bog and a two-acre fen—from the post-glacial era 10,000 years ago. This preserve contains a diverse array of bog and fen plants: labrador tea, cotton grass, pitcher plants, showy lady’s slippers, larches, and buckbean.

Susan and Dean Greenberg, volunteer stewards of Eshqua Bog, advise visitors: “The showy lady’s slippers are usually in bloom around June 20th—depending on the weather. Yellow lady’s slippers are about two weeks earlier and there are many fewer than the hundreds of showys. There are also northern bog orchids and green orchids which are blooming about the same time or a little after the showys.”

Eshqua Bog Natural Area is co-owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy in Vermont and Native Plant Trust. the Nature Conservancy installed a 460-foot accessible boardwalk so that more people could enjoy Eshqua’s natural treasures from its multiple viewing platforms and benches. The boardwalk was designed and installed by Josh Ryan and his team from Timber and Stone, LLC., “The boardwalk and entrance trail provides equal access to all visitors who seek an opportunity to view this unique wetland. While the trail was built to comply with accessibility standards, we were committed to creating a curvilinear boardwalk that beckons users to explore further.”
