Sifton Bog


The Sifton Bog is an acidic bog in which only a limited number of plants can grow. Most would normally be found in more northern climates. Since the bog is surrounded by woods with Carolinian affinities, one can experience in a ten minute walk changes in vegetation that could normally take a journey of several hundred kilometres.

Because it is the most southerly large acidic bog in Canada, it is an invaluable study area, the more so because of its location in a large urban centre. The Sifton Bog is a Class 2 provincially significant wetland.
