On Tuesday, please join the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife’s chief of Hatcheries, Ken Simmons, for a discussion about Trout Stream Insects. This talk will be especially pertinent for those interested in fly fishing and/or marine habitats. This event will take place at the South Foxborough Community Center.
Also, don’t forget that pre-registration is still going on for the Maple Sugarin’ event in mid-March at Breakheart Reservation in Saugus. This will be a unique opportunity to make your own maple syrup!

Food that is grown locally is better for the environment because it does not need to travel as far nor consume as many pesticides as food grown on large-scale farms far away.
