Winter Tracking at Barre Falls with the Ware River Nature Club
Saturday, February 25: 10:30am-1pm.
In this outdoor walk at Barre Falls Dam in Barre Massachusetts we will explore a stretch of older growth near the Barre Falls
Dam as well as some early successional growth in the same area. Past programs here have resulted in the discovery of the
sign of many mammals including bobcat, mink and weasel. Meet at the first parking lot on the left, about 1/4 mile in from Rte
62  and before you cross the dam. Dress appropriately, bring a trail snack and snowshoes if conditions require. Please see
the sponsor's website for further details:

A Walk on the Wild Side
Alewife Reservation, Saturday, March 25, 2-4pm (Rain date: Sunday, March 26, same time)
Alewife Reservation is a small and nearly forgotten DCR property in the heart of a high-density suburban/commercial
landscape at the intersection of Cambridge, Belmont and Arlington. Nevertheless, sign of 20 species of mammals and over
100 species of birds have been found there at one season or another. Unfortunately, an adjoining parcel on private land at
the heart of the ecosystem is being developed for a luxury condo complex, greatly reducing the size and wildness of the
property. In this program we will look for what is left of its vibrant wildlife diversity. In the past mammal sign of coyote, red
and gray fox, otter, beaver, fisher and muskrat have been found there. The walk will be about a mile at a moderate pace.
Wear mudproof footwear and long pants and sleeves. Bring bug dope. Meet at the reservation parking lot on Acorn Park
Drive in Cambridge. For more info see
