As seasons change, explore trees at our Connecticut River Valley and hill town sanctuaries. Sign up for one or all to learn to identify native trees by their leaves, buds, bark, and flowers. We'll also look at tree communities, how they are changing, and what we can do to improve forest health.
For over 125 years, this property was managed as a dairy farm. The now-protected wildlife sanctuary is complete with mixed forest, dramatic geologic features, pristine cold water streams, and serene pastoral landscapes. Graves Farm supports a variety of trees, and we'll hike through the forest while learning how to identify trees by their structures, barks, twigs, and leaves. We will also look at forest composition, how it might be affected by climate change, and what we can do to help.
This trail walk is about 1.5 miles through forest and field over rocks, roots, and some small hills.
This program will be conducted in accordance with current Municipal, State, and Mass Audubon Covid-19 protocols. The program will take place entirely outdoors.
