Wildlife Walks at Alewife Reservation, Cambridge, MA
Alewife Reservation is a small DCR property surrounded by
industry, high-density suburbia and office parks. Despite its
unpromising setting, this 130 acre park is part of a larger
ecosystem that provides habitat for a amazing variety of wild
animals such as coyote, fox, otter and deer as well as annually over
90 species of birds. The Friends of Alewife Reservation and other
interested groups have been fighting for many years a proposed
development in the heart of this "urban wild." These walks will be
along the North Trail, a signed nature trail along the Little River.
This is a rough trail with muddy sections so wear sturdy boots, long
pants and long sleeves. Bring insect repellant, water and
enthusiasm for this urban gem.
Sunday, April 20, 10am-noon.
Sunday, May 18, 1-3pm.
These programs are sponsored by the Friends of Alewife
Reservation. They are free and open to the public. For further
information and directions, please see their website:
