Alewife Wildlife Walks
Alewife Reservation is a small DCR park located in Cambridge, Belmont and Arlington, Massachusetts. In the past it has
been remarkable for the diversity wildlife found within its borders, despite its location in an area of mixed industrial, office
building and high-density suburban development. Over 90 species of birds have been observed here, and the mammal list
boasts deer, coyote, red and gray foxes, otters, beaver, muskrat, fisher and more. In recent years the greater eco-system in
which the reservation is embedded has been under development pressure, and last year a large part of it was cleared for a
condo development. This series of walks will help determine what wildlife persists in the greatly reduced habitats of the park
and its adjacent woodlands.
The monthly 2-hour walks are sponsored by the Friends of Alewife Reservation. They are free and open to the public.
No reservations are required. Wear long pants and sleeves. The walks are suitable for adults and teens, 13 and up. Please
see the Friends website for times and other details: www.friendsofalewifereservation.org.
