Spring Wildflower Trek: A Family Hike

Join us for a Trustees Trek, to search for the awesome, vivid colors of spring wildflowers at Farandnear! 

Many of New England’s wildflowers are called “Vernal Wildflowers” meaning they are short-lived.  Their blossoms are timed to take advantage of the brilliant rays of the direct sunlight hitting the forest floor, well before trees leaf out, providing an important source of pollen for early insects in the forest.  We recommend you come prepared with sturdy boots and insect/tick protection.

This program will be offered outdoors in light rain. In the event of heavy rain, it will be relocated to an indoor space at Fruitlands Museum in nearby Harvard for hands-on activities and crafts. 

Please note that space is limited and pre-registration required.

About Shirley, MA
Shirley is a rural industrial town located on the lowlands of the Catacoonamaug River. A handful of colonists arrived in 1720 and settled on scattered farms throughout the town.

Early in its history Shirley was supported by its many farms and orchards. There was an increase in industrial activity around 1790 and the first paper mill was opened followed shortly after by a small iron works and nail factory.

The location of the water to power industries served to create an industrial village along the narrow valley where Shirley is located. Many of the period brick towered mills still survive and create an authentic period landscape.
