The Maxwell Conservation Trust, a Scituate based land trust, is sponsoring “A Walk in the Woods” on Sunday December 12th from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Over the last 10 years, the Maxwell Trust has been instrumental in the preservation of over 200 acres of open space in Scituate, particularly in the west end of town, where there is a large tract of unfragmented forest that was privately owned by several different families.
Steve Ivas, an environmental scientist who specializes in wetlands, will lead a fun and informative walk through the Litchfield, Maxwell and Carl Pipes Memorial Trails starting at the Mt. Hope Improvement Society Building,which is located at the corner of Clapp Road and Cedar Street in Scituate’s West End. Please plan to warm up with us after the walk with mulled cider and cookies in the Mt. Hope building.
This walk is an opportunity to experience these trails while learning about the flora and fauna from a local expert. Come see the land that has been preserved through the efforts of Maxwell Trust, the Community Preservation Committee and you, the people of Scituate, who have voted at town meeting to support this effort.
Overflow parking is available in the Robbins’ field opposite the Mt. Hope building.
