Sunday Stroll Along Shaw Farm Trail

Enjoy the beauty of nature in winter on a free guided walk with the Buzzards Bay Coalition at Shaw Farm Trail in Fairhaven and Mattapoisett on Sunday, February 7 at 1:00 pm.

The Coalition’s recently opened Shaw Farm Trail links the Phoenix/Mattapoisett Bike Trail and Nasketucket Bay State Reservation. On this walk, you’ll learn about Nasketucket Bay’s history and ecology, plus get some exercise and fresh air.

The walk is free, and will run about an hour. Participants should meet at the intersection of the bike trail and Shaw Road (approximately 94 Shaw Road, Fairhaven). Parking is allowed along the east side of Shaw Road. Please dress for the weather, including appropriate shoes and winter clothing.

“Sunday Strolls” take place on the first Sunday of each month this winter at a different Buzzards Bay Coalition conservation area in the region. The next Sunday Stroll will take place at LaPalme Farm in Acushnet on March 6.

These walks are part of the Coalition’s Bay Adventures series that are programs designed for explorers of all ages to get outside and discover Buzzards Bay. To learn more about all our upcoming Bay Adventures, visit

Registration is required for all Bay Adventures. To RSVP online, visit or contact the Buzzards Bay Coalition at 508-999-6363 ext. 219.
