Wildlife Walks at Alewife Reservation
About a mile walk over level terrain at this little "urban wild" can show evidence of a surprising assortment of
wildlife despite its location in a highly urbanized area. In the past sign of beaver, otter, both foxes, coyotes and
deer among others has been discovered there. The walking may be muddy so wear good boots and bring
binoculars if you have them. Come and take a look at this amazing little place at risk for imminent development.
