Nathan Ellis Highway
MassWildlife will hold a Habitat Site Walk at the Frances Crane Wildlife Management Area on Nathan Ellis Highway in East Falmouth on September 29th from 2 to 4 pm.
This fall, MassWildlife is holding a series of Habitat Site Walks on Wildlife Management Areas across the Commonwealth to let the public hear from habitat specialists and to view habitat restoration in action on MassWildlife lands.
MassWildlife’s management activities are focused on declining habitat types that provide homes—food, cover, and space—for the state’s most common and most rare animals and plants. The goal is to create and maintain native grasslands, shrublands, vibrant young forests, woodlands, and dedicated forest reserves.
Habitat site walks will demonstrate a range of habitat types. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes for walking. Site walks will be held rain or shine, but will be cancelled or cut short if there is thunder and lightning.
MassWildlife has been restoring native sandplain grasslands, barrens, and woodlands at Frances Crane WMA in Falmouth for many years. Biologists and ecologists involved in the project will discuss how these restoration projects have provided habitat for many rare species.
