 To help promote the many open space resources available to the citizens of Plymouth, the Plymouth Open Space Committee (OSC) is sponsoring a community Hike at the Beaver Dam Conservation Area. Entrance to the Beaver Dam Conservation Area is at 219 Beaver Dam Road, Plymouth, MA  on the south side of the road.

The Beaver Dam Conservation Area is is approximately 783 acres in area and provides stunning views of Little Island Pond and Great Island Pond. Both ponds provide numerous recreational opportunities with excellent habitat for freshwater fishing and bird watching. The Conservation Area also provides unique nature walks as it is composed of upland pine barrens - a rare New England ecosystem primarily found in south eastern Massachusetts and Cape Cod.
 
The event will be lead by members of the OSC. Time to complete the hike is about 1 ½ hours. Bring insect spray, always recommended in wooded areas for ticks, and for those who decide to linger, bring water and a snack. Pets are not allowed for this hike.  A trail map and more information can be found at: https://www.plymouth-ma.gov/sites/plymouthma/files/uploads/beaverdamtrailmap.pdf.
