Calvin: “Look at all the stars! The universe just goes out forever and ever!”
If you ever needed a reason to step outside, whether to gaze at the stars or walk in the woods, Florence William’s engaging book, The Nature Fix, supplies it in spades. The Nature Fix explores the beneficial physical, psychological and social changes that nature induces in us, and explains the science behind it.
2016 Audubon Bird Count
New Trail Opened in Town Forest
In 1925, the Town Forest Committee (a Committee that was formed in response to the Board of Selectmen’s 1922 request to establish a Town Forest) purchased over 100 acres (90 acres on River Road and additional acreage off of Jewett Street) for $500. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts provided 5,000 white pine seedlings to any community who established a Town Forest of 100 acres or more. The white pine seedlings were planted by local groups including scouts and school children.
