South Lockwood Walking Tour
Over forty people braved a chilly start to Sunday morning to join MRG Executive Director Rod Christie on a walking tour of some of the Gorge’s protected properties. We walked along a high ridge to observe a beautiful wetlands system below, which is the Gorge’s newest land acquisition that added over 4 acres to the Preserve.
Rod pointed out evidence of the creatures that inhabit the Preserve, from Pileated Woodpeckers to bobcats. We observed spectacular rock outcroppings, beautiful mosses and ferns, and some of us even saw a Bald Eagle.
The South Lockwood walking tour concludes the schedule of 2016 MRG events. We eagerly anticipate next year’s calendar (available in February) and the re-opening of the Preserve trails on April 1. Thank you for your support in 2016, and we look forward to seeing you on a walk in the spring!
