NSRWA Walking Club – Norris Reservation in Norwell
Saturday, May 13
Join us for Walking Club in May, our Guest Host for this month is Liam Norton. Liam is an avid birder, science educator, traveler, and photographer born and raised in Scituate, Massachusetts. He is a Bird Tour Leader for Birding Scituate, who recently graduated from Suffolk University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and a concentration in Marine Science. Liam is currently pursuing a career in science education and conservation outreach.
We will be walking at the Norris Reservation in Norwell. This 129-acre parcel with more than a half-mile of river frontage is owned by the Trustees (formerly Trustees of Reservations). Second Herring Brook passes through the property, and flows into the North River. There are two miles of trails, plus a boat house with views of the river.
There is a small parking lot on the property, with additional parking at the post office across the street. Liam chose this property because it is an important ecological area with diverse habitats. The area encompasses dense pine and oak forest, woodland edge, salt marsh, and outstanding views of the North River and Second Herring Brook. These ecosystems are a breeding ground and important migratory stop-over for a wide variety of bird species!
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.
