NSRWA Walking Club – Denham Pond in Hanover
Saturday, April 8
10:00am – 11:30pm
Please join Walking Club Guest Host Chris Jacobs on Saturday, April 8th, as we explore Denham Pond in Hanover. Chris Jacobs is a non-profit professional with over 25 years of experience educating about and advocating for the natural world. Chris has a passion for native species, especially wildflowers (primarily because they are stationary and easy to observe!) Chris currently serves on the board of Wild Ones South Shore, MA Chapter, an organization that promotes the use of native plants in the landscape. Chris enjoys exploring Denham Pond for its rich biodiversity and the plethora of spring ephemerals.
Denham Pond is property owned by the Town of Hanover, located at 106 Circuit Street. Formerly a well-managed forestry parcel, it contains an easy wood-road trail through wooded uplands, and mostly dry footpaths through wetland areas. There are two vernal pools on the east side of the property. Denham Pond, a small dammed pond located at the entrance to the property, has been well loved by generations of neighborhood children for summer fishing and winter skating.Fauna to be seen at Denham Pond include spotted and red-backed salamanders, wood frogs, white tailed deer, wild turkey, and red squirrel. Notable flora include stands of mature white pine and eastern hemlock, as well as red cedar, red oak, beech, holly, and the occasional yellow birch.
The Walking Club is looking for guest hosts. If you would like to lead a walk on a local trail that you love, please contact Theresa Delahunt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
