Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary Hike
To help promote the many open space resources available to the citizens of Plymouth, the Plymouth Open Space Committee (OSC) is sponsoring a community Hike at Mass Audubon’s newly opened 450 acre Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary (60 Beaver Dam Road, Plymouth) on Sunday, May 6, at 1:00 p.m. Come explore another of the many open spaces Plymouth has to offer. Participants of all ages are invited at no charge to this relatively easy hike. According to Mass Audubon, the Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuary was a working cranberry farm before it underwent the largest freshwater ecological restoration completed in the Northeast. The previous owners and a number of conservation groups have re-created over three miles of a meandering stream by removing nine dams and sculpting the land’s surface to reconnect the headwaters of Beaver Dam Brook to the Atlantic Ocean.
The event will be lead by members of the OSC. Time to complete the hike is about one hour. Bring insect spray, always recommended in wooded areas for ticks, and water and a snack for those who decide to linger. Pets are not allowed in the Sanctuary.
