About Late Summer Sunset Stroll at Powisset Farm

Relax, unwind and join us for a Late Summer Sunset Stroll!

Witness the beauty of the farm at dusk, with Killdeer swooping through the skies for insects, Great Blue Herons hunting for frogs in the vernal pools, and Cottontail Rabbits scurrying through the fields on their way to their burrows in the historic rock walls. This time of day is perfect for catching a glimpse of Massachusetts’ magical creatures who are most active during the twilight hours or after dusk.

About your program leader:

Trustees guide Amanda is a local mycologist and naturalist with experience foraging New England’s edible and medicinal fungi and working with New England plants and trees to share their many ecological and human benefits. She is a combined Global Environmental Studies master’s student at Clark University, with a focus on food systems, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and utilizing fungi as a tool for addressing food insecurity in urban communities.

Bring closed-toed shoes appropriate for trail hiking, mud and puddles may be present.

Please note, although we love our four-legged friends, dogs are not allowed at Powisset Farm.
