A natural history field walk, with a special focus on butterflies, bees and other pollinating insects will take place in Conway on Sunday, August 30th from 4-6 pm. Anyone interested should meet at the Langevin property at 302 Riley Road.
For the last several years, the Langevin family has managed their property’s meadows to encourage butterflies and other kinds of insect pollinators. In 2012 the family registered their field as “monarch way station,” one of 100 such sites in the Commonwealth. The walk will be led by Aimee Langevin Anderson and Laurie Sanders, a naturalist in western Massachusetts and the former host/producer of Field Notes, a weekly natural history series on New England Public Radio (88.5 WFCR).
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the South River. It is the second of two walks this season supported by a grant from the Conway Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and take precautions against ticks, poison ivy, etc. In the event of severe weather, it will be rescheduled.
