Peat bogs too valuable to chop up for use as gardeners’ peat moss

nccvidccn | September 21, 2010 | Mer Bleue is a 3,500-hectare wetland located at the edge of Canada’s Capital Region in Ottawa. Ecologically, Mer Bleue is a unique example of a northern ecosystem — more typical of the Arctic than of the Ottawa Valley. Internationally recognized by the Ramsar Convention for its contribution to the global environment, Mer Bleue plays an important part in protecting the diversity of plants and animals in our region and in stabilizing the climate globally. It may well be the single most-studied bog in the world. http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/merbleue
