Wildlife Walk at Alewife Reservation/Blair Pond
Saturday, November 14, 10am-1pm.
Although the heart of this reservation has been destroyed by a housing
development, much remains. Blair Pond is a small outlier across the railroad
tracks from the main part of the park. However, it has dense growth and water,
both attractions for wildlife living secretly in a high-density urban and industrial
landscape. In this walk we will search for evidence of some of this wildlife. The
approach will be through the new storm-water wetlands project, which may also
yield wildlife evidence.
Meet at the reservation kiosk across from the Alewife T-station. Parking is
available a short walk away in the reservation parking lot on Acorn Park Drive.
This walk is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Friends of
Alewife Reservation. Please see their website for details and directions:
Tracking the Pine-Oak Forest of Summer Star
January 3, 1-3pm.
Summer Star is a new, privately-owned wildlife
sanctuary in Boylston, MA. Its founder, Shalin Liu, has
dedicated it for the enjoyment and education of the public.
The sanctuary comprises 45 acres mostly of upland pine-oak
forest. The tracking walk will seek to discover what wild
animals are abroad in the sanctuary in the winter and relate
them to the habitats in which they are found.
Programs at Summer Star are free but participation is
limited, and sign-up is required. Details should appear on the
sanctuary website soon: www.summerstarwildlife.org.
