Monthly Great Meadows Walk - March

Male silver maple flowers
A continuing series of monthly walks exploring the landscape, plants and seasonal wonders of Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord

Sunday, March 18, 3-5 pm

March brings the water element back to Great Meadows and the Concord landscape. Leopard frogs tune up, muskrats cavort, redwings flash their epaulets, and birdsong fills air.  Fattening maple buds bring the first blush of color to the floodplain forest.  This spring promises to move quickly, let's enjoy it together.  Waterproof footwear or rubber boots are recommended.

Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist and photographer

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

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