The first (of many, we hope) annual Brewster Conservation Day was held on Saturday, July 14, 2012. Hundreds of people gathered at Drummer Boy Park over the course of the day to sign up for nature walks and visit the exhibits, including Americorps’ popular puppet show on recycling. Click here for the full schedule.
The purpose of the day-long event was to increase awareness of the unique environmental assets of Brewster by getting persons and families out on the land to enjoy it and learn a little something along the way. Guided walks, led by some of Brewster’s most knowledgeable naturalists and historians, were held at eight venues scattered about town. A kayak/canoe tour of Upper Mill Pond was also featured.
The Day was sponsored by the Brewster Conservation Trust, the Town of Brewster (Natural Resources Dept. and Conservation Commission), with assistance from many community groups. All funding came from donations to the Brewster Conservation Trust.
Included in the Day’s events was the first public tours of the Eddy Sisters Trail, BCT’s first interpretive nature trail on one of its properties (Lower Road Community Garden).
We hope to plan on many more years of similar celebrations. Let us know what we should add. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 508-362-2565.
