Guided Walk- Gertrude Cornish Forest

November 29, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


Join TRWA member and volunteer Ellenor Simmons as we explore this beautiful Norton property also known as Town Forest, located near the Three Mile River. This walk will wind us through a pine forest that has reemerged after a winter moth (Operophtera brumata) caterpillar outbreak ten years ago, killing many of the large oaks. A necessary timber harvest removed the dead wood and thinned the pine canopy to promote regeneration of native tree growth. Sturdy footwear recommended. Pups welcomed. No restrooms available.

Ellenor brings 32 years of state parks experience to TRWA as a former Southcoast Field Operations Team Leader and park supervisor with the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation. In her retirement, she enjoys leading walks and volunteering with our Diamondback Terrapin Population Research Project

Limited to 15 participants. Registration required. Members free, non-members $5.

Meeting Place: 189 Plain St, Norton across from Timothy Plain Cemetery

To register call (508) 828-1101 or email director@savethetaunton.org.
