Bedford Reservation: Sagamore Creek Walk

"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished."     Lao Tzu

 

Bedford Reservation: Sagamore Creek bioObservation Survey

We had a wonderful time on the Wednesday evening of 16 April 2014 identifying and photographing various plants along the Linda Falls trail.  Our path led us through a woodland, along the edge of a ravine, and into a floodplain populated by wildflowers in differing stages of emergence.  Along the way we passed a white oak tree and were told that shed skins of black rat snakes have been observed in the branches.  None were observed on our evening walk.

Nature is a wonderful teacher.

Preserving Land and Protecting Habitats: Public Park Districts Deserve Our Support

Preserving land and protecting the habitat of threatened species is a magnificent investment in the future. One of the best ways to do this is to support our local parks and preserves. Public park districts especially deserve our support. It is imperative that we have protected places where the public can appreciate the peace and beauty of nature.
