Wetlands in Winter Hiking Mini-Series: Black Spruce Pond
A surprising amount of activity is still taking place in Goodwin Forest in the early winter. Join Master Naturalist Deb Field for a moderate hike around two of our wetland habitats and we’ll see what we can find. Sturdy hiking shoes recommended. If conditions are icy, spikes and/or hiking poles are a good idea as there are some rocky/rooty trail sections.
Meet at the kiosk on Eleventh Section Rd (at the intersection of Bartlett Rd & Nutmeg La) for a 2.5 mile hike around Black Spruce Pond.
