We miss you!!! We also hope that you are safe during this time of COVID-19 and that life is still meaningful and fulfilling despite the challenging circumstances we find ourselves in. Due to COVID-19, we have cancelled all in person events through July. We hope to resume our usual programming in August, but given the unpredictability of the virus, we cannot be sure. We are keeping our fingers crossed. Please stand by for news.

For the first time in modern recorded history, Bald Eagles have constructed a nest in the Cedarburg Bog! It remains to be seen if this nest will come to fruition however as this is a first-time venture for one or possibly both of the eagles. Time will tell… (Photo credit: John O’Donnell)

While human lives have been disrupted by the pandemic, life in the Bog goes on.Springtime is in the Bog and summer is close behind! Frogs are wildly singing and mating. Birds are courting. And beautiful ephemeral flowers are bursting forth from their slumbers.

In lieu of our usual programming we will be staying connected via email, our website, and social media. We will be routinely posting news from the Bog until such time as we can once again meet in person at the UWM-Field Station, on the boardwalks, in the deep woods, or prairies, or marshes which we all love.

Please take good care of yourselves and those about you and in the community at large. Also try to maintain your connection to the natural world as a grounding force. And finally, remember — the Bog is still there going about its natural business.

On behalf of the Friends of the Cedarburg Bog,

Jim Ellis, President
