March signals the beginning of March and there are a couple of events to get you out to enjoy it!
Spring starts at Walden Pond! What better time than days surrounding the Vernal Equinox to celebrate increasing hours of daylight and the promise of spring! On Sunday, March 17, join a park interpreter between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. at the Thoreau house replica near the main parking lot for a walk and talk around Walden Pond about the upcoming season. Please dress for the weather.
Tell me if you’ve heard this joke before. So a Wetland walks into a Market…never mind. Salt marshes are a crucial piece of coastal ecosystems required to maintain the services that people value at the coast. Head over to the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve on Thursday, March 14 at 7:00 p.m. to hear Dr. Kevin D. Kroeger, a coastal bio-geochemist at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal & Marine Science Center, describe a new project aimed at quantifying carbon storage capacity and greenhouse gas movement in coastal wetlands, using Cape Cod as a model.
