Great Meadows March Walk


Saturday, March 16, 3-5 p.m.

March is a month of seasonal transition and the ever-presence of water and wind. 
"Ice out" time brings the prospect of spring flooding and emerging wetland plants and wildlife.  Muskrat and beaver boldly appear, redwings return, birdsong fills the marshes, eagles join the spring feasting, and fat red maple buds burst into bloom in the floodplain forest.  Join me to explore spring's early awakening throughout the refuge.  Dress in warm layers and wear waterproof footgear.

No preregistration required.  A $5/person donation will be gratefully accepted.

Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist and photographer

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

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