Standing out in vivid contrast to the surrounding Pocono Mountains landscape, Tannersville Cranberry Bog provides a snapshot of colder times. Thousands of years ago, a large glacial lake occupied the space of what has since become a thick soup of peat moss surrounded by tamarack, black spruce and other vegetation representing the legacy of an ancient boreal forest that once covered this region. Today, while the ice and lake have long receded, the unique bog ecosystem that remains serves as the southernmost low elevation boreal bog in the United States.
