Citizens for Lexington Conservation Early Fall Walks – 2018

 

Saturday September 8th, 10:30 am – 12 noon – Bugs & More at Willard’s Woods

On this walk we’ll look for invertebrates of all kinds, particularly dragonflies, spiders, and butterflies.  We’ll look under logs, whack tree branches to see what falls out, and sweep-net the grass.  Children with adults are welcome.  Meet at the parking lot off of North St.  Rain or lightning will cancel the walk.
Walk leader:  Ned Eisner (781-454-8023, edward.eisner@verizon.net)

Saturday Sep 29, 8-10 am – Fall Birding at Dunback Meadow

Dunback Meadows during the end of September can offer surprises as the end of the return migration of vireos and warblers approaches; and the sparrow migration is increasing in numbers.  Meet at the Allen St. entrance.

Sunday Oct 7, 2-4 pm – Lower Vine Brook Exploration

If you have found the trail system in the Lower Vine Brook Conservation property confusing in the past and have not discovered the new colored arrow trail markers, this is your chance to reacquaint yourself with this property. Meet your guide at the trail entrance on the Fairfield Drive cul-de-sac between 9 and 15 Fairfield Drive.
