"Hidden Gems of the Tiadaghton" Series: The Algerine Swamp

With nearly 150,000 acres of land in the Tiadaghton State Forest, there is bound to be some incredible, interesting, and beautiful sites that most people just aren’t aware of. In this series of programs, you will get to see a variety of these unsuspecting areas.

The Algerine Swamp contains a part of a glacial bog, which is “one of the finest and most represented high mountain bogs in the Allegheny Mountains section of Pennsylvania.” Come see and learn about what makes this area so unique as we hike approximately 3/4 of a mile into the swamp to view some of the trees, plants, and animals that call it home.

Good, waterproof boots, rubber/Muck boots, or a willingness for wet feet is strongly recommended, as is insect repellent. It is very likely we will end up in at least ankle-deep water.

Participation limited to 20 people. Please register using the green “Register” button to the left.

Please contact Vinny Curtis by phone at (570) 754-5409 x 132 or email at vicurtis@pa.gov with any questions.
