Cranberry Glades Botanical Area
Cranberry Glades Botanical Area, located within the Monongahela National Forest, is the largest and best example of "cranberry glades" in West Virginia. The natural cold air drainage and moist substrate provide an ideal setting for a northern sphagnum bog. The site contains three major vegetation types: bog forest, shrub thickets, and open glade.
Year designated: 1974
