Purpose and leadership

 

The Bog Learning Network is a consortium of scientists and land managers working to advance the restoration and management of Southern Appalachian Bogs.

The Network provides a forum for sharing information and experiences about bog management and conservation. It also helps bog managers find important information, determine resource needs, and helps find ways to meet those needs.
