Early Successional Forest & Birds Walk

May 4 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Join Forester and Opacum Director Scott Gerrish to learn more about how a forest recovers from a tornado and about the importance of young forests as bird habitat.

Sleepy Hollow has a nice seasonal brook and diverse surrounding wetland and is a unique property in our region with great potential. Learn about what Opacum Land Trust has in store for this property too! The walk will last about 2 hours and cover a distance of approximately 1 mile over terrain that is uneven and shrubby. Dress appropriately and check for ticks.

PLEASE RSVP as space is limited for the walk (20 people).  https://secure.lglforms.com/form_engine/s/b-rtYre-yBcUPtxx0BF9rQ

**An Important Note About Parking** – There is limited parking available at the property. We are asking all attendees to meet at 7:45 AM at St. Christopher Church, 20 Sturbridge Rd, Brimfield. We will park there and carpool to Sleepy Hollow. The carpool will leave the Hitchcock parking lot promptly at 8:00 AM.
