Starry rosinweed is at Cedar Bog Nature Preserve near Urbana, Ohio.  It's a very good example of boreal fen, unusually far south.  Cedar Bog has several habitats, all easily visited on trails and boardwalks.  It also is a good location for a boreal specimen like me to see a number of species that are rare or unknown at home.  It is very much worth a visit.

Cedar Bog is also not too far from Campbell Hill, the highest point in Ohio.  Campbell Hill owes its fame to a accident of rising topography as one goes west.  It is very little higher than the surrounding area, and very much not worth a visit.
