Monthly Great Meadows Walk - February

Sunday, February 12, 3-5 pm

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

This winter has been empty of snow but full of surprises.  The open water pools and many overwintering coot have attracted a variety of rarely seen raptors.  Rails, mink, beaver, and muskrat have been active along the shorelines.  We'll take this last wintery opportunity to reset our seasonal clocks, exploring whatever appears and inspires.  Our foray will finish with a long gaze toward the setting sun.

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

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