Great Meadows Evening Walk
Friday, August 3, 6:30-8 pm
Great Meadows NWR, Monson Rd., Concord
Please join me for an evening stroll through Great Meadows at the height of lotus bloom and beginning of migration season. We'll listen for crickets and katydids, look for early great egrets and blue herons feeding, and watch primrose blossoms open as darkness falls. Summer evening skies and the glow of thousands of lotus blossoms are always spectacular. Hope to see you there!
Meet in the parking lot at GMNWR. Follow Rte. 62/Bedford St. in Concord to Monsen Rd. Follow Monson Rd. to a sharp right curve and turn into the refuge driveway there on the left.
As always, your donations are appreciated.
