Woodburn Peat Bog #2

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

In the 1980s, a sewer project on the grounds of Woodburn High School revealed an ancient peat bog. The bog preserved the bones of Ice Age creatures like giant sloths, elephants and bison. Field Guide returns for a new dig in the bog.
