Hikers to visit Lydick Bog Nature Preserve

The Harbor Country Hikers will explore a kettle hole bog at Lydick Bog Nature Preserve in South Bend on Saturday, April 2, starting at 2 p.m. (ET). Kettle hole bogs were formed when huge blocks of ice detached from glaciers during the ice ages. They contain unusual flora, including insect-eating plants. Lydick Bog is a dedicated Indiana State Nature Preserve that protects one of the last remaining sphagnum bogs in the state. Doug Botka, stewardship ecologist for the Shirley Heinze Land Trust and lead steward of Lydick Bog, will lead the hike of about two miles of trails, and the physical difficulty is rated moderate.
