Join the Vineyard Conservation Society (VCS) at the Headquarters building off Barnes Road for a hike guided by MCSF superintendent Chris Bruno and Friends of the State Forest organizer Bob Woodruff. Mr. Bruno and Mr. Woodruff will share their knowledge of the ecology and geologic history of the Island’s largest, and most important, conservation property – home to more than 40 rare species and their supporting habitat, including globally rare frost bottoms and pine oak barrens.
Prior to the walk, we will get a brief introduction to the ongoing project by the Friends group to construct an outdoor classroom and interpretive center for the Forest. Progress on the timber-framed pavilion (inspired by an ancient French marketplace) has been impressive so far, but much work remains to be done.
Sunday, November 10 at 10:00am to 12:00pm
