BNC will close at 12pm on December 24 and CLOSED all day December 25 & January 1.
This aerial photograph from 2005, by MassGIS, shows the landscape today. Myerson Road is gone, but its old path is still evident, paralleled by the Snail Trail; just to the right of the Nature Center, the Nature Nook also sits on land that was raised to make the former roadbed. The Service Building too is gone, leaving the large level meadow that you pass on the drive into the sanctuary. Thus, these three features on the present BNC – Snail Trail, Nature Nook, and the large meadow – all stand on land that has been significantly changed over the past century!
