“So much to see at Cedar Bog! Each month seems to have something new to see. One of the most (if not top) floristically diverse places in Ohio. Staff is friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable of the different plants and animals you may encounter. This is a must see for any one who enjoys nature.”
