Suitland Bog, located just inside the Capital Beltway, is the best preserved of more than than ten bogs historically reported in Prince Georges County. Although small, it is carefully managed by the Park and Planning Commission. Once containing over 40 plants on the state rare list, Suitland Bog still harbors about twenty rare species. including red milkweed, rose pogonia, northern pitcher-plant, and bog goldenrod. The main area of this bog is traversed on a wooden walkway and other areas involve walking along the edges of the bog.
