Saco Heath

Saco Heath was created when two adjacent kettle-hole ponds filled with decaying plant matter called peat. Eventually, the two ponds filled completely and grew together to form a raised coalesced bog, where the surface of the peat is perched above the level of the groundwater. The 1,223-acre preserve is one of the southernmost examples of this peatland type, home to Labrador tea, leatherleaf, and rhodora. Bring a hand lens and a bag lunch.
