But houses and strip malls never appeared, thanks to the property's former owners, Dr. and Mrs. Homer McMurray, who had it designated as a botanical preserve in 1954. Today, Ponemah Bog is open to anyone who wants to take a quiet walk in a serene botanical preserve and see an unusual variety of plant species, including hardy northern trees such as spruce and more southern ones, like pitcher plants and sundew.

"It's a magical place," he said. "Unfortunately, most people don't realize it until they take a tour with someone who's familiar with it. It completely changes your perspective."

Because there is no inlet or outlet, water and all animal waste products accumulated, making the bog's soil acidic and creating a good environment for certain kinds of plants, such as sphagnum moss once used by Native Americans to diaper their babies which now forms a floating mass over much of the bog area.

Recently, Jack Gleason, a naturalist with New Hampshire Audubon, led a small group over Ponemah's three quarter of a mile of boardwalks and viewing platforms, pointing out examples of plant species that are rarely found together.

to the public every day until dusk. More information is available at the four viewing platforms. Gleason said volunteers are always needed to help keep it free of trash and to trim plants that encroach on the boardwalk.

In the 19th century, the 75 acre bog and its layers of peat seemed ripe for exploitation. A hundred years later, the land's dry, sandy soil would have made it ideal for development.

the land's dry, sandy soil would have made it ideal for development.

"Everything here is more or less trapped," Gleason said. "That's one reason it became a very acidic environment. It's also very oxygen poor, so there's no decay," and it doesn't have an odor, as a marsh often has.

There is dry upland forest near the parking lot, off Stearns Road, with tree species reminiscent of southern forests, full of pitch pine and assorted oaks. Incidentally, pitch pine are the pine trees with somewhat twisted trunks that line 101A in front of Amherst's Wal Mart, Gleason said, and the trees are there because the town had asked for them to be saved.

The group continued on to the bog itself, which Gleason explained is actually another kind of wetland, called a fen, and has a high diversity of plant species, including carnivorous plants. There were several of the flesh eating plants along the way, and he explained their ingenious methods for capturing insect prey.

The bog mat has been filling the pond with plant remains for at least 6,000 years, and now all that is left of an ancient 100 acre lake is a 3 acre pond.

If the bog is a museum of plant species, its history, as shown on the bulletin board at the parking lot, is an indication of how our attitudes toward land preservation have changed. In 1941, a state agency called the New Hampshire Planning and Development Commission decided the bog was suitable for exploitation and might yield as much as 250,000 tons of air dried peat. So the property was sold to Frederick Crabtree, of the Tufts University Engineering Department, who operated the peat removal. Fortunately for the bog, the venture proved unprofitable. There are still two trenches through the moss, left over from the operation.

He also gave a quick history of the bog, beginning 10,000 years ago, when Amherst was covered by many feet of ice.
