About this walk:
Join Tyler Maikath, HCT Outreach and Stewardship Coordinator, for a walk exploring this 27-acre property, one of HCT’s first major acquisitions. HCT is coming full circle in 2019 with an opportunity to purchase and protect the last remaining wooded lot next to Coy’s Brook Woodlands. With scenic vistas over Coy’s Brook, and the creeks and salt marshes along the Herring River, we’ll look for migratory waterfowl and other waterbirds. We will visit a rare Atlantic white cedar swamp, and discuss how Harwich’s history of cranberry cultivation has affected the landscape over the last 150 years. This walk is free, but space is limited, so advance reservation is required
