HummingbirdQuincy Bog (also known as Cranberry Bog) was threatened by development in the early 1970s and purchased for $10,000 by a local group led by Joe Kent (incorporated as "Rumney Ecological Systems"). The Nature Center (131 Quincy Bog Road) was built in 1978. The 43-acre property, consisting of a pond and associated wetlands surrounded by upland forest, supports a variety of plant and animal life, including typical bog/fen vegetation and an active beaver colony. The mostly level, mile-long trail around the pond is open to the public free of charge 365 days a year during daylight hours.
