About this Location

The Belvidere Bog wetland complex is located at the headwaters of the Lamoille River North Branch and is approximately 375 acres. A number of wetland types are present in this complex including shrub swamp, cedar swamp, shallow marsh, mixed shrub swamps, deep marsh, a rare dwarf-shrub bog community, and numerous beaver ponds. The wetland complex is highly significant for its size, diversity, and function in the watershed. The Belvidere Bog wetland complex has been rated highly significant for coldwater fishery habitat, water quality protection, erosion control, education, recreation, and wildlife habitat. The wetland complex is considered a habitat for the common loon, once considered endangered, and also was rated as a high-quality northern-level bog. The size of the wetland complex and the undisturbed area surrounding the complex makes this area suitable for wildlife species that need large ranges such as black bear, bobcat, and moose.
