Cowles Bog

This is Cowles Bog at the Indiana Dunes. The bog is a special ecosystem in Northwest Indiana filled with unusual plants and fauna.

The DNR is currently fighting an influx of cattails not native to the bog. The horrendous job of  uprooting the cattails and planting native sedges is a hot, summer job.

A couple of the dunes can be seen in the background of the picture.
