Carrying Place Cove Bog
The coastal, raised plateau bog at Carrying Place Cove Bog, is one of only six such fully-featured peatlands in the United States. It is a tombollo that has been eroded by the sea from the north, resulting in a vertical erosion face. This cross-section exposes the entire developmental history of the peatland.
Year designated: 1980
