Flowers and Fruits of Vaughn Hill
The 187-acre Vaughn Hill Conservation Area exhibits impressive plant diversity, with pine forests, fields, hills, streams, and a beaver pond with a dam and lovely shoreline. One of the highest points between Boston and Mount Wachusett, the summit of Vaughn Hill boasts great views. In early August, flowers are in bloom and ripe fruit weighs down the dewberry vines and blueberry and huckleberry shrubs. This walk will focus on plant identification as well as the fascinating natural history of the Area. Bring lunch, a favorite field guide, and a hand lens if you have one.
