The field trip will be April 24 at 9 am. The meeting place is a bit different from last time. We will be going to the north end of the reservation.
Get to Monson, and head south out of town on route 32. Look for a green road sign pointing left (there is no right turn) toward Wales. Make that left. In a short distance bear LEFT at a fork. This is Munn Road. Follow this road through a crossroads and continue on. There will be a large pond with dead trees on the right, just past this is Sutcliff Road on the left. Immediately past Sutcliff on the right is a small parking area. This is where we will meet. The large pond is the northern edge of the Conant Brook reservation. If the parking area is full go back to Sutcliff Road and park along there.
Please lt me know if you are coming. The weather looks good, but in case of tornado I need to be able to contact you 🙂 Use the form below or the contact information in the newsletter.
Update: we saw great blue herons adding sticks to a nest, a pine warbler, a hooded merganser, and some tent caterpillars, and bluebirds, as well as enjoying a nice spring day in nature.
