Join us as we partner with a Mass Audubon Teacher/Naturalist to greet the summer solstice at this 180-acre conservation area managed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR).
Learn the history of the famous Brook Farm utopian community that occupied this site from 1841-1847 as we explore woods, meadows, and marsh focusing on arriving migrant and other songbirds.
Trails here are wide and flat. We will cover approximately 3 miles on foot.
