Edible Plants with Russ Cohen

Baker’s Pond Trail
with BCT Land Stewardship Coordinator, Jon Bruce
Sign up HERE!

Bakers Pond is on the boundary with Orleans, with some of its shoreline protected by each town. A short blue loop in Orleans and a longer one in Brewster provide good pond overlooks. Huckleberry Hill is located farther west via the yellow trail. Cart paths and foot trails traverse a 90-acre assemblage of BCT and town-owned conservation lands. There is a peaceful valley with a vernal pool, and then a 120 ft. climb up Huckleberry Hill. The mixed forest has some white pine, mockernut, sassafras, and a grove of American beech. In the autumn, the carpet of knee-high huckleberry shrubs turn wine-red.(2 mile loop). This walk will be about 60 minutes.

Mother’s Bog Trail at Pine Pond
Sign up HERE!

“Join a Cape Cod naturalist on a leisurely forest walk.  Between 1990 and 2020, the Town of Brewster and Brewster Conservation Trust negotiated the purchase of six parcels totaling more than 150 acres in the SW corner of Brewster off Slough Road, centered on Mother’s Bog, named for the late  Louisa Maria “Mother” Crowell (1852-1951) of East Dennis.  The Crowell family ran the 12-acre bog or leased it until it became uneconomical in 2005.  There are about three miles of walking and horse-riding trails on the town land here, including the Old Meetinghouse Road, a colonial-era cart path used by Harwich villagers to get to church on the Northside before Harwich created its own parish in 1803.
This walk will be about 90 minutes, flat terrain, soft sand.
