The Mattapoisett Land Trust has worked with the Buzzards Bay National Estuary Program to create two new trail maps to encourage the public to visit the properties: one for the Old Aucoot District in the eastern part of town and the other for the Walega-Livingstone Preserve on Brandt Island Cove. The maps can be downloaded by visiting the Land Trust’s website www.mattlandtrust.org and looking under the “Properties” menu.
On Saturday, June 9, Stewardship Chairman, Paul “Ozzie” Osenkowski, will lead a walk along the Land Trust’s newest trail connecting Holly Woods Road with the Grace Preserve in the Old Aucoot District. Maps will be available for the walk, which will proceed from Holly Woods Road, past the Grace Pond, to Angelica Avenue. Hikers will have a chance to experience an appreciate the preserve’s late spring flora and fauna.
All interested walkers should meet at the Land Trust sign on the west side of Holly Woods Road at 9:00 am. Please dress appropriately for a walk in wooded wetland- long sleeves and long pants with waterproof shoes are recommended, especially after the recent rains. For more information call 401-787-6047, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
