Grassy Pond Conservation Land is a 96 acre sanctuary that includes Grassy Pond, associated wetlands, two small streams and an upland forest of oak, hickory, white pine, and hemlock.  Grassy Pond is a kettle hole pond formed during the retreat of the glaciers and it exhibits bog characteristics around its perimeter.  There are two boardwalks to keep us high and dry while we explore the wetlands. We’ll take a look at 16 - 20 native New England shrubs, ranging from obligate wetland species to species which prefer the higher, drier upland areas.  The class will focus on shrub identification as well as some fun and interesting natural history.   Bring lunch, a favorite field guide and a hand lens if you have one.
