This blog is dedicated to Massachusetts wildlife, parks, and agriculture, and outdoor activities and events held across the Commonwealth. Posts will range from tips about the greatest state park hikes and how to help wildlife biologists spot bald eagles to recipes for preparing seasonal, locally grown produce and photographs of native fish species. Our bloggers are employees of EEA agencies who are experts in wildlife biology, wetlands protection, farmer’s markets, and outdoor recreation. Click here to meet them. I hope you will read and comment on this blog, but most of all, I hope you will use the information here to go out and enjoy all that Massachusetts has offer outside.
