Protecting Paradise: Gowing's Swamp and Thoreau's Bog

 
A slide presentation and talk by Cherrie Corey
Wednesday, October 26, 7 pm
Visitors Center – Assabet River NWR
680 Hudson Road, Sudbury, MA  
Offered free of charge by the Friends of the Assabet River NWR      
The program will include my photographs, historic materials, recent research, and stories that recount the natural and social history and unique ecology that make Concord's Gowing's Swamp and Thoreau's Bog such an intimate and magical landscape, one that has inspired more than a century and a half of study, reflection, and protective response.  Also, learn about recent citizen efforts to defend this fragile wetland complex from the potential impact of proposed development and to seek permanent preservation of its waters and surrounding shorelines.
