Late fall is an excellent time to explore the lay of the land. With leaves dropping, the casual observer begins to notice topography and large-scale landscape features. This class explores the variety of habitats and landscapes that comprise New England’s largest urban wildlife sanctuary. Each week we will touch on soils, geology, forest composition, learn to identify different trees and shrubs, and look at how plants and animals transition to winter. Note: Expect to walk 1-3 miles on uneven terrain each class. In inclement weather, class will be held indoors.
