Join Westford Conservation Trust birder Lenny Palmer for an early morning ramble at Westford’s birding “hot spot”, Emmet Conservation Land. We will search Nashoba Pond and wetland areas on Town and Audubon conservation lands for returning migrants and nesting resident birds. Bring binoculars and wear sturdy shoes as land can be rocky and hilly in places.
NO DOGS please. Park in the Town parking lot at the end of Trailside Way off Powers Road.
Walk is free of charge and no sign-up is required.
