Highlights This sanctuary is owned and managed jointly with the Vermont Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. The 40-acre parcel completely surrounds and protects an 8-acre wetland that abounds in showy lady’s slippers (Cypripedium regiEshqua Bognae) and other wild orchids. A boardwalk allows easy viewing of the wetland plants while protecting their delicate habitat. To see the showy lady’s-slippers in bloom, plan to visit mid to late June. Stewards Roni Skerker, email@example.com Irma Graf, EndATend@aol.com Directions Eshqua Bog is located on Garvin Hill Rd. in Hartland, near the Woodstock town line. From I-89 in Vermont, take Exit 1, Route 4 west toward Woodstock and Rutland. Just before Route 4 enters Woodstock Village, after the Cumberland Farms store and another convenience store with a Mobil gas sign, Route 4 makes a 90-degree turn to the right, but do not go right. Instead, turn left up Hartland Hill Rd. (town Highway #73), and follow almost 1.2 miles. Shortly after passing log house on right, bear right onto a dirt road (Garvin Hill Rd.). Follow this road another 1.2 miles. The bog is on the right and is marked by a sign. Park in the turn off area just before the bog entrance.
