      “The Nature Conservancy” appear in blue text roughly three paragraphs into this post—the universal indicator of a hyperlink: if you click or tap it, you will automatically be redirected to the “Spring Bog Pond” page of The Nature Conservancy’s website.

      Alternatively, you can left click/long press on the blue text and choose the option “Open in new tab,” which will open the same page in another window in your browser, or choose “Copy link address,” open a new search and paste the link into the search box.

      Failing all of that, http://www.nature.org will bring you to the home page for the The Nature Conservancy.

    A bog is indeed a magical place and we owe many thanks to the Nature Conservancy for its preservation. I also recommend the bog at Silver Lake Camp, Hawkeye, NY, also, I think, now the property of the Nature Conservancy, but most importantly (at least to me) the devoted work of many years by Betty Hicks, owner of Silver Lake Camp, the place where 60 years ago I learned to love the the woods and the Adirondacks, a love that still sustains me and is now shared by my children and grandchildren.
