Cranberry Bog Nature Preserve, a tiny jewel set in the wetlands of Riverhead, is what remains of an abandoned cranberry-growing operation. The 165-acre preserve serves as part of the drainage system of the Peconic River and is a natural reservoir for Long Island’s freshwater supply. The acidic marshes, bogs and wetlands of the surrounding area made it an ideal habitat for growing cranberries. Hiking trails on the property allow for sights of the Little Peconic River, various plant life, birds, reptiles and other local wildlife.

Join us at this magnificent preserve when mushrooms, cranberries in the bog and fall color make it the most beguiling time of year.

This walk is free of charge, but advanced registration is required!
