EVENTS

March 15, 2019 11:00–12:00. Seasonal Walkabout at Lusitania Wet Meadow, Fresh Pond Reseration. 

Come out for a seasonal walkabout with Ranger Jean at the Lusitania Wet meadow. We will monitor wildlife by sign, track or presence, and make note of weather, state of plants, condition of water and other abiotic resources. You can help chart the seasonal changes of some of our most active wildlife spots, or simply come to enjoy the walk. Come dressed to be outdoors for the hour. All knowledge levels welcome. We will be walking off-path. Service dogs only, please. To RSVP, please contact Ranger Jean at (508) 562-7605 or email jrogers@cambridgeMA.gov, heavy rain postpones to the following Friday.
