A look at what the massive bog that has been situated in front of Legionville School Safety Patrol Training Center on North Long Lake looks like now. Volunteers were able to move more pieces of the bog Wednesday. To the left you will see the large portion of the bog still located in front of the swimming beach, along with a smaller piece of the bog just to its right. Further to the right in the trees, you can see where the bog pieces are being moved to in Merrifield Bay.
