One sure sign that spring has broken in Southborough is all the upcoming activities being organized by SOLF. The Southborough Open Land Foundation has four special events coming up in May. It starts with an evening stroll, monthly through the end of summer.

On Sunday May 6th at 6:30 pm “sharp”, the community is invited to join SOLF in an evening stroll at Beals Preserve:

Summer Evening Strolls at Beals Preserve

Starting May 6, Trustee Debbie Costine will lead a series of informal evening strolls along the trails of Beals Preserve. The strolls will be the first Sunday of each month at 6:30 PM. We will be looking at the flora and fauna as well as noting a bit of history of this former pasture. We will also photograph specific areas to note changes from spring to late summer. The strolls will be held the first Sunday evening of each month, May 6, June 3, July 1, and August 5. All are welcome, but no dogs, please.

Walkers are encouraged to bring along binoculars and cameras. The group will park and meet in the cul de sac at the end of Red Gate Lane off Flagg Road.

I’ll be posting about other events soon, but in the meantime here are some dates to save:

  • May 9 (7:00 pm) – Annual Meeting with presentation on “New England Pollinators and How to Support Them” @ Community House
  • May 12 (7:00 am) – Bird Walk with Jeff Collins @ Breakneck Hill Conservation Land
  • May 12 (2:00 – 4:00 pm) – Fairy/Gnome Village Workshop @ Beals Preserve
  • June 13 (4:00 – 6:00 pm) – Art on the Trails 2018 Opening Reception @ Beals Preserve

For more details, visit solf.org.

Updated (4/25/18 8:39 am): My listing of the May 12th afternoon event had a major “typo”, listing it as a second bird walk. It’s actually a Fairy/Gnome Village Workshop!
