Walk the Brownell Property with Us!

Posted January 31st, 2011 in Event, News, Recreation by Charles Radville


The Mattapoisett Land Trust invites the public to join members and friends on Saturday, February 12, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm as we visit the Brownell parcel, the property that the MLT hopes to acquire in June of this year. We’ll examine the current condition of the blueberry orchard and proceed along the existing trails to the stone wall on the southern boundary. The walk will demonstrate why the Brownell parcel is an important addition to the holdings of the Land Trust but it will also offer a chance to experience the beauty of the winter woods.

All interested walkers should meet at the Friends Meeting House at 1:00 pm from where the group will proceed across Route 6 past the Martocci Preserve. Drinks and snacks will be provided. In case of inclement weather, or if the snow is too deep, we will try again at 1:00 pm on Saturday, February 19.  For more information call 774-377-9191, or email info@mattlandtrust.org.
