Back by popular demand, join ecologist and naturalist Pat Serrentino for an exploration of the wildlife and their habitats at Bennett Meadow Wildlife Management Area in Northfield. This is the continuation of a walk held in October, 2021, where we explored the diversity of habitat types found at Bennett Meadow, including agricultural fields, rivers and streams, riparian forests as well as marshes and shrub swamps. Join us to learn about the migrant birds that come to this area to breed in spring and summer, along with other animals that are active after the long winter. We’ll also look for ephemerals if there is time and interest.
This free walk is geared to adults and children over 8 yrs, limited to 12 people and is sponsored by Greening Greenfield.
Please come prepared to bring binoculars (though not essential) and wear sturdy shoes. The walking will be on some uneven ground in places. Heavy rain cancels.
We are a relatively small group of people and out-of-doors, but would still welcome everyone to wear masks.
