Region: DFW Hosts Tornado Damage Site Walk

August 11, 2011

From 6:30-7:30 p.m., the Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (DFW) will host a public site walk to view and discuss tornado damage impacts at the McKinstry Brook Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Southbridge and Sturbridge. Join DFW biologists, ecologists, and foresters as they discuss habitat impacts associated with tornadoes and other high wind events. Staff will also talk about how land use changes by people have limited other natural disturbances such as beaver flooding and fires that historically provided additional open wildlife habitats across the landscape. Rain or shine. Dress for the weather, wear sturdy boots, and, if possible, bring insect repellant, binoculars, camera, sunscreen, and leather or cotton gloves. Meet at the gravel parking area at the south end of the WMA in Southbridge. For more info, visit http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/index.htm.
