I will be returning to the Keep Homestead Museum in Monson for a nature walk coming up on Sunday, October 2 at 1:30. While it is renowned for its button collection, Myra Keep, along with her father, also had a strong interest in natural history and there is a room in the museum with their collection of rocks and shells. The property has a trail system of under 2 miles that passes through both field and forest habitat.
I will lead a walk on these trails, looking for signs of the season, identifying some of the local plants, as well as looking for examples of how the land tells us stories of both recent and long ago history. In the event of rain I will give a presentation of nature photography from the greater Monson area.
The Keep Museum is located at 35 Ely Road in Monson. http://keephomesteadmuseum.org/index.html
