First a few recent sightings in Sax-Zim....Flocks of redpolls and White-winged Crossbills have been seen recently. A Great Gray was seen on Admiral Road a few weeks ago. Winter is coming!
When Steve Martin and Owen Wilson both mention "Sax-Zim Bog" in a major motion picture, you know the place must be famous, right? But we also know that that place is not protected...Nor is there a place to welcome visitors, share sightings, learn about the natural history of the Bog, or even warm up and use an outhouse on a minus twenty morning!
Friends of Sax-Zim Bog is kicking off its efforts to preserve bog lands and construction of a Birder/Photographer Welcome Center in the Sax-Zim Bog.
Alaska artist, Nancy Hausle-Johnson will be making handmade tiles of boreal birds for a permanent installation.

A new 3-minute Sax-Zim Bog video is also posted on the homepage.
See you in the Bog!
