RLT Plans Leonard’s Pond Event

In keeping with this year’s goal of visiting parcels in the Explore Rochester trail booklet – jointly published with the Conservation Commission’s Open Space Committee – the RLT invites the public to join us on Leonard’s Pond to explore its inlet and shoreline Thursday, August 7 at 5:30 pm.

The public is urged to bring canoes or kayaks to the new Town of Rochester launching area, just down the road from RLT’s Herb Wood property. Members of RLT will have a few canoes and kayaks available for use if needed. What will follow will be a leisurely paddle about this pristine impoundment of the Sippican River. Early evening views of Eastover Farm, bird life settling in for the night, and a perfect time for fishing – with a valid MA license – will be the plan.

What a lovely outing for families or 9-5 workers to look forward to after a hot summer day. And remember, there is a picnic table just up the road at the Wood property and wild blueberries for the picking around the Town’s launch site.

So join us, Thursday, August 7 at 5:30 pm to explore this little bit of paradise here in Rochester. And watch the Town’s website in the fall as Explore Rochester adds new parcels to walk and updates the first 12 with changes in information to its online guide.
