Early Successional Forest & Birds Walk
When: May 4th @ 8 AM (Rain Date May 5th @ 8 AM)
Where: Sleepy Hollow, Brimfield, MA
Cost: Free, RSVP Required

Join Forester and Opacum Director Scott Gerrish to learn more about how a forest recovers from a tornado and about the importance of young forests as bird habitat.

Sleepy Hollow has a nice seasonal brook and diverse surrounding wetland and is a unique property in our region with great potential. Learn about what Opacum Land Trust has in store for this property too! The walk will last about 2 hours and cover a distance of approximately 1 mile over terrain that is uneven and shrubby. Dress appropriately and check for ticks.

PLEASE RSVP as space is limited for the walk (20 people).

**An Important Note About Parking** – There is limited parking available at the property. We are asking all attendees to meet at 7:45 AM at the Hitchcock Academy parking lot (corner of North Main Street and Brookfield Road in Brimfield). We will park there and carpool to Sleepy Hollow. The carpool will leave the Hitchcock parking lot promptly at 8:00 AM.
