Allenberg Bog is also known to some as Waterman’s Swamp, Congdon’s Pond, and Owlenburg Bog and is on the border of the towns of Napoli and New Albion, New York in Cattaraugus County. A unique and fascinating refuge of 390 acres, it is the jewel of the Buffalo Audubon Preserve System. Even before the first parcels joined Audubon’s preserve holdings in 1957, the area was famous among botanists for its wild orchids, more than 30 species of liverworts, nearly 60 species of mosses, and approximately 258 species of vascular plants. Note: It is recommended that you visit Allenberg Bog with a group or tour. (Note: these directions show Farm Market Rd but it may also be called Allegany Rd or Road #10 on maps).
DIRECTIONS (From the southeast): From NY 417 in Salamanca (I-86 exit 20), take NY 353 north 9.2 miles to NewAlbion Rd, just north of Little Valley. Turn left onto New Albion Rd and proceed 1.7 miles to Pigeon Valley Rd. Turn left onto Pigeon Valley Rd and proceed 3.5 miles to Farm Market Rd. Turn right onto Farm Market Rd. The right of way to the bog is on the right side of the road. However, it is very hard to recognize. It is strongly recommended that you have a guide take you into the property.
