When a Community Comes Together: 90mm Updates

When a Community Comes Together: 90mm Updates

Have you been following the 90mm meadow restoration project, spearheaded by Medford Girl Scout Troop 75198? Read early news on this fantastic project here and here.

We have updates!

Nature committee member and blogger Laura Costello shares some field reports here and here.

The Girl Scouts, DCR, Friends of the Fells, and other community partners remain busy!

Tufts University came out to learn about and maintain the site as part of their innovative Tufts FOCUS first year orientation program.  Check out the photo series from their visits below:

 

We had a great time and learned an incredible amount at our recent meadow workshops. This knowledge will help us support, expand, and mentor in this, and other ecologically vital areas in the Fells. Thanks Helia Native Nursery, Bridghe McCracken, and others who shared their knowledge!

Given all the buzz (okay, pun intended) surrounding the area, Harvard botanist and hike leader Walter Kittredge opted to lead his latest tree hike there.  Thanks to everyone who came!

Walter is telling the crowd about this pignut hickory.

View Walter’s gorgeous photo album of the area here.

Thank you for all your support in this area.  If you’d like to support these types of efforts, click here to donate and here to volunteer.

Located at Ramshead Hill, the 90 mm meadow site can be accessed at Gate 10 in the Fells or via the trails surrounding it. Click here for a link to our free maps page:
