NEW date for this walk that has been cancelled twice due to poor weather!
Mike Boday, Vice President of the Cumberland Land Trust, will lead a beaver walk through a small section of the 170 acres of woods and marshland, just off the Nate Whipple Highway, in Cumberland. This walk is the second of two walks highlighting the valuable role beavers play in creating biodiverse landscapes.
The area contains four adjacent properties, purchased over a period of ten years, including the White Cedar Swamp, the James J. Bland Property, the Gold Star Preserve, and the Burlingame Preserve. Bounded on the east by historic Colonial Road, the area features streams, ponds, a beaver dam, wooden walkways, rare wetland habitat, Atlantic white cedar trees, and many walking trails.
Mike and his wife, Barbara, who are both RIWPS members, have invited the group to visit their own property, adjacent to the CLT preserve, after the walk. Their gardens and landscape have been part of several tours sponsored by the Master Gardeners, as well as Tranquil Water Gardens.
A few days before the walk, driving and parking directions will be sent to those who register. Also, if you find you cannot attend after you register, please contact email@example.com. We anticipate having a waiting list for this walk.
