The Friends of Alewife Reservation will host an Educational Walk Series.
November 13, Bill Ackerly, long time birder and guide to Eagle Scout bird box building and placing initiative leads a special bird box cleaning project and discussion to start off the Saturday series. Throughout the years, the boxes have been put up by Eagle Scouts and the Department of Conservation and Recreation DCR and other community groups. Boxes to prepare for spring will be cleaned for owls, wood ducks, kestrels, swallows, wrens, and song birds.
On December 18th, Dave Brown, noted professional tracker and wildlife specialist of Quabbin Reservoir, Middlesex Fells, and other large parks teaches docent learners about ecology and habitat of the diverse Alewife Reservation animal and bird species. Dave produced a report, then published into a booklet, "Biodiversity of the Alewife Reservation Area: Species, Habitat, Ecosystems" for sale at the event.
