Big Spring Bog Natural Area Preserve


The preserve is characterized by low rolling hills sloping towards a small boulder strewn creek which eventually flows into Chestnut Creek, a tributary of the New River. Featured here is an extremely rare wetland community known as a cranberry glade. The glade occurs as a small opening surrounded by a mixed oak-pine forest.


This preserve has no public access facilities.


By arrangement with Steward

Part or all of the preserve may be periodically closed for resource protection or prescribed burning activities. Please call before visiting.
