BRWA Winter Hike
February 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$5
Our partners at the Mendon Land Use Committee and The Blackstone River Watershed Association would like you to know about a Winter Hike on Sunday, February 10th. Please read below for details.
The Blackstone River Watershed Association (BRWA) will host a winter hike on Sunday, February 10, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00pm. The group will start at Cormier Woods and hike into Meadow Brook Woods in Mendon, originally home to the Nipmuc Tribe. Parking is located at the Cormier Woods parking lot, 217 Chapin Street, Uxbridge (abutting the Mendon border).
The leader, natural history guide Susan Thomas, will lead the group on a scenic and informative hike through the fields, woodlands, and waterways of the Cormier Woods and Meadow Brook Woods conservation properties in Mendon.
These 262 acres are managed separately by The Trustees of Reservations, the Mendon Land Use Committee, and the Mendon Conservation Commission, and they include riparian areas, vernal pools, wetlands, meadows, and forested habitats that support a diversity of plants and animals. Intermittent streams drain to Meadow and Wigwam Brooks and Inman Pond, before emptying into the Blackstone River in neighboring Uxbridge. Come witness reminders of the land’s rich agricultural past dating back to the 1700s, and learn how the natural and historic resources are being conserved.
Ms. Thomas will lead the group on a scenic and informative three mile hike through the fields, woodlands, and waterways of the Cormier Woods and Meadow Brook Woods conservation properties in Mendon. The ground is a bit uneven because of roots and rocks and could be muddy or snowy depending on the weather. Wear appropriate footwear and bring water. Following the hike, warm drinks and refreshments will be served.
This event is FREE to BRWA members, $5/person for non-members and $10/family for non-members. If you need more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 508-278-5200.
If you are a large group, please contact BRWA so that we can plan on how best to incorporate you into the gathering.
