Forest Rebirth: Basswood Pond
June 18 @ 9:00 am to 11:00 am
Two years ago, a large spruce plantation was logged as part of Basswood Pond State Forest’s ongoing management. Join us for a hike to the area where we’ll observe how nature restores itself. We’ll look at the plants, insects, birds and wildlife that make this new environment their home, and study surrounding areas of the forest for a hint at what’s to come. Meet at the main parking area on Conservation Road. Wear sturdy shoes that can get wet. Free, but pre-registration is required.
