Walking Club – Nelson Memorial Forest, Marshfield
Saturday, June 10
Join guest host Irene Bilodeau as we explore the Nelson Memorial Forest on June 10th. Irene is an avid hiker who loves exploring trails on the South Shore with her dog. The New England Forestry Foundation owns the Nelson Memorial Park- a 180-acre parcel. There are 3 miles of intersecting trails through varied habitats. One trail offers views of Cove Creek and the marshes that surround it. Another trail leads down a steep slope to a gorgeous view of the North River and the Union Street Bridge. Nearby are the remains of a historic Packet Landing — a wharf built of rocks and logs, where packet ship pilots would pull up to the shore to sell their wares. Contiguous with Union Street Woodland and Phillips Farm Preserve. The property is rich in history and biodiversity.
Parking: Park at Union Street Woodland, which is located just before Hunter Drive while driving north on Union Street in Marshfield. Additional parking (2 cars) on Highland Street, at the intersection with Spring Street, across from Rogers Pond.
This event is FREE, however, registration is required.
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.
