Barrens Habitat Restoration on Barre Heathland: How can forest management and prescribed fire programs support rare plant and animal habitats?
1 mile - Moderate
Meets at the Intersection of Rt. 62 and Barre Rd in Hubbardston, MA https://goo.gl/maps/XgcGPEuf5SP8QK8MA
Curious how active management of a forest and prescribed fire programs can increase diversity, support rare plant and animal habitats, and maintain forest health? Since 2008, DCR-DWSP has worked with the Massachusetts Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program (NHESP) to restore and maintain this heathland habitat. Take a walk with DCR-DWSP staff to learn how our management of this area is protecting an imperiled habitat and how we will continue to restore and maintain it for rare species and ecosystem diversity. Space is limited.
