Hike at Nashua River Conservation Area in Clinton
Sunday, December 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
Come explore the beautiful Nashua River Conservation Area in Clinton on Sunday, December 15 with Al Futterman, NRWA Land Programs Director, and Frannie Hodge, a Director with the Clinton Greenway Conservation Trust, as your guides. Along with views of the river, the property has a rare natural community known as "Dry Riverside Bluff." Found only in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the Dry Riverside Bluff community occurs next to rivers in steep, sandy areas. It provides habitat for species that enjoy dry conditions and open space, and it is globally endangered. Types of flora found in a Dry Riverside Bluff environment include American hazelnut, low bush blueberries, woodland sunflower, trembling aspen, individual or thicketed scrub oak, and goat's rue.
