Rain or Shine

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

As we approach the summer solstice, join in an exploration of June's lush flora and some of the many caterpillars, butterflies, and other insects that dine on and pollinate them.  Massachusetts caterpillar maven, Sam Jaffe will join me for a casual look at many of these unseen residents...a preview to summer workshops on the caterpillars, butterflies, and moths of Great Meadows.  Remember your sunscreen.  Camera, notebooks, and binoculars are welcome.

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

Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist and photographer
and Sam Jaffe, naturalist and expert on Massachusetts caterpillars

Co-sponsored by Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program
and Friends of the Assabet river NWR
