peat wetlands are rather nice for a variety of reasons.

re the frozen peat soils of the north there are a couple of links in the mini ice age thread to the state of things in the permafrost regions.

We need a good mixture, no doubt about it but I think forests are generally overrated & wetlands ignored. So much potential.

I wonder what the marsh-based equivalent of a 'tree-hugger' is?

Do bog snorkelers count?

Dunno, best we've come up with so far is 'bogger'.

swampy got so named cos his tunnel at fairmile was rather wet rather than for his swamp hugging

bog hopper is a term used for folk who like crossing wetlands for fun but i dont think floundering counts as hugging
