Instructed by Neela de Zoysa

Co-Sponsored by Sudbury Valley Trustees

Sudbury has over 4,000 acres of protected open space and the scenic Sudbury River with wetlands, forests and wildlife. These include national wildlife refuges, state lands, town conservation lands and Sudbury Valley Trustees’ properties. This 4-week indoor course will focus on the value of these areas and opportunities to enjoy nature in Sudbury; highlight locations for hiking, walking, birdwatching, wildflowers, and canoeing. You will get a flavor of vistas, plants and wildlife, orientation to basic rules of use, family and dog friendly locations, maps and handouts with easy to reference resource lists. A $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor at the first class. Neela de Zoysa is a Sudbury resident with 35 years of experience in natural resource conservation. She is a Core Instructor for the Native Plant Trust (former New England Wildflower Society) and serves on the Outreach Advisory Committee of Sudbury Valley Trustees.
