November 6, 2009: Shadow Lake Bog

This week Green Acre Radio brings you to a unique bog and wetland in south King County. Shadow Lake is known as the "eye" of the bog, a type of wetland dominated by acid-loving mosses. It's one of only 3% left in the county and a place like no other. A bog's most important function is absorbing water, which prevents flooding and recharges the groundwater supply. Hear from those restoring this unique habitat including foresters, entomologists and Earth Corps volunteers.
