Deciphering Changes in the Plant and Animal Communities in the Fells
Saturday, May 8, 8:30-10:30 AM
Bellevue Pond parking lot, South Border Rd., Medford
Leaders: Colin Orians and Julia Osborne
Colin Orians is a professor of Biology and Director of Environmental studies at Tufts University. Julia Osborne is a contributor and editor with Mass Audubon, and a leader with Winchester Trails:
We will explore a variety of Fells ecosystems, including an oak-hickory woodland, a burned hillside, an old field, and a pond. We’ll focus on the evidence that reveals how the plant and animals in these locations have changed over time. Many songbirds migrate in early May, so bring binoculars, if you have them.
Meet at the Bellevue Pond parking lot opposite 70 South Border Road in Medford. Steady rain cancels.
