The Friends of the Fells had a lot of programs and events planned for this spring, but COVID-19 is keeping us all away from each other. We’ve launched our new Youtube channel to pique your interest in the Fells and enhance your experience when you visit. We will be using this platform to highlight plants, animals, history, geology and events related to the Middlesex Fells.
Our first set of videos is the “Spring Ephemeral” series, featuring BU professor of biology (and Friends board member) Dr. Randi Rotjan discussing a few of the interesting plant species that are beginning to bloom in the Fells:
If you have an idea for video topic that you would like to share, or have any interest/experience in videography or video editing and would like to volunteer those skills, please contact us!
If you would like to share your own relationship with the Fells, please participate in our My Fells project. We’re looking forward to seeing the different ways we experience this shared resource.
We have a full queue of videos already planned for the channel, so check back often for updates!
Update: Inspired by our new YouTube channel, videographer Fritz Bosch offered this video he produced featuring former board chair and botanist Bryan Hamlin, talking about the Fells. It is as relevant today as it was eight years ago. Have a look:
