Botanists Visit
Clymer, N. Y., Bog
Mr. Arthur Shields’ Botany 1
class took its first field trip of the
school year last week when it paid
a visit to the well known Clymer
Bog, situated near Clymer, New
Two cars of students accomp
anied their instructor as the class
got its first look at the ancient
little lake that is almost entirely
covered with a. great variety of
vegetation and other sundry grow
Probably one of the most out
standing growths in the bog was
the fairly rare pitcher plant which
grows in abundance around and
in the swampy area itself. Along
with it the students found a good
amount of sundew, another .of the
insectivorous plants. Cranberries
also were discovered in profusion,
but Mr. Shields is not too sure
.these were enjoyed by all.
. .“One of the outstanding features
of the bog,” stated Mr. Shields,
“is the fact that small pine trees
are growing right on top of the
water’s surface along with other
growth varieties.” Everytime the
group jumped up and down, the
pines and. vegetation seemed to
weave and ripple with the surface
of the lake.
While getting. practical illust
rated instructions from their lec
ture the students were kept busy
at times dodging or side stepping
mushy spots and occasionally
muskrat holes in the bog.
The class brought back one pitc
her plant and several other re
presentative species which are now
on display in the botany lab in
Room 107. Mr. Shields warns,
however, that the pitcher plant
is showing marked signs of be
coming, extinct in local areas and
that in most instances the layman
should refrain from taking it from
its natural habitat.
Other fields trips, which are a
part of the scheduled agenda for
botany classes, are to be taken in
the future with one possibly taking
place on Erie’s Presque Isle;
