LETS HIKE WILDCAT CONSERVATION AREA/BOXFORD MA

Sunday, March 8, 2020 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM

A pleasant walk along forest trails with occasional stops to observe and sense what's around us. The hike will be about 4 miles. Wildcat is only about 320 acres but feels much larger. Vernal pools are sprinkled throughout the forest. If the weather cooperates, male wood frogs may be croaking, or rather quacking. And to add to our adventure, a local naturalist has observed a porcupine in the forest. Porcupines are a rare occurrence in Essex County so the fact that one will be nearby should be exciting. We'll meet at 12:30 PM at WCA parking area.
