About Us:

The 750 acre Cranberry Glades Botanical Area is close to Hillsboro and boasts the largest collection of bogs in West Virginia. Bogs are acidic wetlands more commonly found in the northern United States and in Canada. The Cranberry Glades is home to plant and animal life similar to that found in the bogs or muskegs of the north. This life spread southward with the changing climatic conditions that allowed glaciers to creep across the northern part of our continent. Several species ended their migration here, and the Cranberry Glades are now the southern-most point in North America where some of these life forms are found.
