Impressions - Westmeath Bog

This 43-ha area was acquired by the Province in 1977 and was regulated as a conservation reserve on June 9, 2003. It is a small part of the much larger Westmeath Bog. The Westmeath Bog, in Site District 5E-12 is a large provincially significant wetland that has plants that are reminiscent of northern bogs. It is mainly lowland forest of cedar, black spruce and tamarack, with a carpet of shrubs, moss and lichens on the ground.
