Support open land; encourage kids’ scientific learning

Southborough Open Land Foundation has two news items worth sharing.

As I shared this spring, SOLF is continuing its wildlife survey (focused on “herps”).

The group is now encouraging parents to think of helping as a great summer science project for their kids. (Something some are already doing.)

New SOLF Trustee Lawrence Spezzanno is again directing the Herpetological study at the Beals Preserve. We are collecting data on species of frogs, salamanders etc. We have quite a few volunteers who have been trained and are now helping. We even have some parent-child combinations! What an amazing summer project for those scientifically inclined. There is still room for a few more. Contact us through this site if you are interested.
