New Walk Series!
Identifying Plants throughout the Year
at Breivogel Ponds Conservation Area
A five-walk series on Wednesdays,
beginning September 28th and continuing on December 21st and on three more Wednesdays in 2017
10AM to 11:30 or noon
The 67-acre Breivogel Ponds Conservation Area features a variety of habitats―woodland, grassland, fresh water ponds and new vernal pools. In spring 2016, T3C and the Town of Falmouth Conservation Department worked together to begin restoration of nearly 20 acres of an old sand and gravel mine here. The wide open central area leads to a lovely woods filled with tall pines and winding trails at the back of the property.
Let's have fun discovering this fascinating conservation land together! Join Alex Lancaster (508-540-4619) and Marcy Klattenberg in identifying vegetation in this area and returning again and again to watch the growth and change that take place. Explore such topics as “Is it a pine, a fir a spruce or…how many evergreens are there?” “Brush a certain green plant to smell oranges.” “Should we make tea from mugwort, or put the leaves in our shoes?” “Identify a smartweed (is there a not-so-smart weed?)”
Meet: at the Breivogel parking area on the east side of Blacksmith Shop Road, just 1 mile north of Falmouth High School. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a full water bottle. Rain will cancel.
Watch this great new video about T3C's upcoming land acquisition! We hope you can help...
