Take a morning stroll while learning about the unique habitats at our area’s parks, trails and forests during a free four-week Wednesday Walkabout series in March, hosted by the Buzzards Bay Coalition. During each walk, which take place on Wednesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 am, you’ll enjoy some fresh spring air while you tour local properties with special habitats.
On March 14, take a walk through an Atlantic cedar swamp at Copicut Woods (1700 Indian Town Road, Fall River). On March 21, celebrate the arrival of spring at Flora B. Peirce Nature Trail (Falmouth Street, New Bedford), and on March 28, explore a large vernal pool at Tinkhamtown Woodlands and the Woodcock Preserve (32 Long Plain Road, Mattapoisett).

Wednesday Walkabouts are part of Discover Buzzards Bay, an initiative to help people across the Buzzards Bay region find unique and exciting ways to explore the outdoors, get some exercise and connect with nature. Local residents can use Discover Buzzards Bay to get outside and discover woods, wetlands and waterways from Fall River to Falmouth. To learn more, visit savebuzzardsbay.org/discover.
