The Mattapoisett Land Trust invites the public to join members and friends on Saturday, October 13, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm as we explore the biological diversity of the Nasketucket Bay State Reservation. The walk will be led by retired UMass Dartmouth Professor of Biology and artist Jim Sears. Our excursion will introduce participants to the variety of flora and fauna in the Reservation with the hope that children and adults will return to explore again at their leisure. Refreshments after the walk will be provided by the MLT.

National Planting Day celebrates the value and power of native species in restoring ecological balance to the environment, while creating greener, more beautiful communities. Why plant natives?
