Sudbury: “inside Route 495” discussion at ARNW

November 28, 2012

| Free

Active and Engaged: Conservation of Rare Species “inside Route 495” in Greater Boston will be presented by? Bryan Windmiller Nov. 28, starting at 7 p.m., at the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge visitor's center, 680 Hudson Rd., Sudbury.? Did you know that many rare species in our state such as Blanding's turtles, little brown bats, timber rattle snakes, and Britton's violets have significant populations within 30 miles of Boston?? This challenges the notion? that the area “inside 495,” the outer limits of Greater Boston, is simply too urbanized and fragmented by roads to be of much conservation value.? Windmiller will describe some ongoing conservation projects related to many of the species mentioned above and some of the challenges involved in conserving wildlife in suburbs and cities. Free and open to the public. Visit http://farnwr.org for more information.
