Boggs Lake is unique to the Lake County Land Trust for several reasons. First, it consists of two vernal pools: one main pool which exhibits the characteristic ecosystem traits for a vernal pool, and one smaller, often dry vernal pool which drains into the larger one.
Second, there are several special species of flora and fauna here, including two plants which are endemic to Boggs Lake and one species of special concern, the Western Pond Turtle.
Third, it is the only property that we do not own, but rather manage for another non-profit organization, The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The Boggs Lake Preserve is located at 6902 Harrington Flat Road, and is open to the public for education and recreation, complete with self-guided interpretive nature trails. LCLT has earned approximately $14,000 in grant money from TNC and fundraising for the purpose of making improvements to the parking area, fences, structure and trail maintenance, and visitor enhancements such as interpretive panels and information stations.
