Led by naturalist Peter Alden, this walk will explore Concord Land Conservation Trust’s Spaulding Land in search of birds, butterflies, bugs and flowers. This property primarily includes fields and wetlands, creating the opportunity to see the diversity of wildlife and plants. Bring binoculars (if you have them), rubber boots, and insect repellant.
The address of the parking is 490 Virginia Road, it’s part of the parking lot for an office building and we generally park in the spaces on the far side of the lot near the road, overlooking the field.
