Coonamessett Bog

Restoring a river to its natural flow and fish passage is a complex process after decades of human modification. Along the Coonamessett River, we will appreciate the 2.2 miles of free-flowing streams, witness the improved access for herring to spawning habitat at Coonamessett Pond, and discuss the restoration of 56 acres of former cranberry bogs to natural wetlands using seeds collected by Native Plant Trust. Join us as we revel in the flora of Coonamessett Lower Bog and study the process of using native plant seeds to restore wildlife habitat.
