Monthly Great Meadows Walk - April


Saturday, April 9, 10 am - noon

A continuing series of monthly walks exploring the landscape, plants, and seasonal wonders of Great Meadows NWR in Concord.

The landscape awakens in April!  Flocks of returning birds, fattening buds, sunning turtles, and brilliant cattail shoots all reassure us that life is renewing.  Join me on our first venture into spring along Great Meadows' marshlands and riverbanks.

No pre-registration required.  A $5/person voluntary donation will be gratefully accepted.

Led by Cherrie Corey, naturalist and photographer 

Co-sponsored by Musketaquid Arts and Environ. Program  and Friends of the Assabet River NWR

Meet at Great Meadows NWR in Concord, MA.  (Monsen Road, off Rte. 62, driveway on left where road curves right.)

For questions, email cherrie.corey@verizon.net or call 978-760-1933.

  1. Hi Cherrie,
    This morning on my walk, I noticed there were a lot (100+) of dead fish washed up on the western side of Upper Pool. Do you know why this is?

  2. Due to the ice and snow cover that sealed the impoundments for nearly 3 months, I suspect these were casualties of the oxygen depletion in the water. I haven't seen them yet, but will take a look.
