WCAS field trip to Bradley Woods

Sunday, June 13, 2010


Leader: Scott Wright


At Bradley Woods on a damp morning, we enjoyed a visit to the impoundment which has become part of Bradley Woods Reservation due to the building of Crocker-Bassett Road.  The area is surrounded by a 12-foot fence, to keep deer out, except for the occasional falling of a tree.  Our trip leader Scott Wright has moved many native plants out of the road area into the new park area, where they will thrive in the swamp forest habitat that they require.  Ferns and club mosses flourish. Woodpeckers abound and wood ducks nest in the protected area. Muddy shoes, a successful trip!
