Tweedy and Barnes Work Day 7/21/20
Next Tuesday, July 21st, Wareham Land Trust will be hosting the last Trail Tuesday of July. Join us as we clear trails of debris and overgrown vegetation, remove invasives, and work on other trail improvements. We will meet at the parking lot at 10:00am and work together until 11:30am. To reduce the chance of spreading COVID-19, please bring and wear a face mask, bring your own tools (loppers and clippers), bring your own water and bug spray, and be ready to work from a safe distance with others. Please RSVP here or email Mike (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know you will be attending.
Tweedy and Barnes is one of WLT’s premier natural areas. The trailhead on Blackmore Pond Road leads hikers through a mixed forest of pine and oak. The majority of the Sippican Loop Trail follows the old Fairhaven Branch Railroad, which was abandoned in the 1950s. The loop trail also offers two lookout points over the Sippican River, one at the end of the old rail bed and one off a spur at the end of the trail system (marked with red circles on the trail map below). Please be careful when enjoying the overlooks. Currently, hikers must walk a small section of Blackmore Pond Road to complete the loop while we address the current layout of the trail. Please be courteous of private property and neighbors while hiking the trails.
We hope to see you next week to enjoy the trails and ensure they are safe and accessible to the public. This will be the last public event for Mike before he completes his TerraCorps term and departs from Wareham, so he hopes to see many of you there. Thank you for your support and happy hiking!
