We'll hike Meadow Pond Reservation and Hampshire Woods. This area is also known as "Turtleland" as it provides excellent habitat for some rare turtles as well as salamanders. Meet at 12:00pm at the Meadow Pond Conservation Area parking area on Uptake Rd in Groveland MA. The hike will last about 3 hours, and plan to hike about 4 miles along woodland trails while listening for Spring Peepers, harbingers of Spring, from vernal pools that are sprinkled throughout this conservation area. Bird migration is well underway and many spring ephemeral flowers are blooming such as yellow marsh marigold and trilliums. Leader: Richard Lombard
