Join ECTA friend and naturalist Jef Taylor for a nature walk in the Chebacco Woods on Saturday, May 26th from 10am-12pm. We will meet at the main entrance on Chebacco Road, which is off Essex Street (Rt. 22) in Hamilton, at 9:45am.
On this walk we will look for animals, plants, and even fungi and learn how all of these living things interact. We will learn which creatures have been here since colonial times and which are more recent arrivals. We will discover what fascinating adaptations the forest creatures have that allow them to survive and play their part in the ecosystem.
Jef Taylor is a naturalist who specializes in urban and invasive species, but especially loves bugs and mushrooms. He has led monthly Urban Nature Walks since 2003, and seasonal Fungi Field Walks since 2006. He currently works with the Zoo New England conservation department on assessing the biodiversity of Franklin Park.
More on parking: Entrance is on the west side of Chebacco Road in Hamilton across from Beck Pond. There is space for about 8 or 9 cars. There is a sign. There is also parking at Gordon College. Please refer to map here.
Other information: This event is free for ECTA members, $20 for non-members. Leashed dogs are welcome. Bug spray, sun screen, and water recommended. This 2 hour walk will be less than 2 miles, as we will be stopping frequently to look at critters and plants.
