Monthly Great Meadows Walk - April

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

Sunday, April 15, 3-5 pm

The warming earth gives way to fattening buds, delicate blossoms, and greening shoots.  Swallows swoop and dive over the impoundments and birdsong fills the air. Muskrats get busy, migrating waterfowl fill the marshes, and spring frogs trill from woodland and shoreline pools. Come explore and celebrate the floodplain's renewal.  Bring binoculars and a camera, if you have them.

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
