Join the Buzzards Bay Coalition and Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust on Saturday, April 12 at 10 a.m. for a hike through Parsons Reserve in Dartmouth to explore a vernal pool, a temporary wetland that forms in spring where many plants and animals live. 

As a bonus, the hike will wind past the daffodil field at Parsons Reserve, where thousands of daffodils bloom each spring.

Be prepared for moderate walking on uneven terrain, rain or shine — the free trek takes about an hour and a half..

Meet at Parsons Reserve, Horseneck Road (just south of Russells Mills Village), Dartmouth,in the parking lot at Russell’s Mills Landing.

Registration is required for all Bay Adventures. To RSVP, email bayadventures@savebuzzardsbay.org or call (508) 999-6363 ext. 219.
