The Barrington Land Conservation Trust and Barrington Recreation Department invite you to a vernal pool walk at Sowams Woods. Celebrate 10 years protection of these woods. Check out the springtime action at our two vernal pools. Learn about work over the past decade to improve the habitat and provide public trails. We are grateful to all our protection partners and the support from the community that have made this day and this decade possible.

The event starts at 3 p.m. and ends at 4 p.m.

This will be a leisurely paced walk across rolling terrain appropriate for all ages and dogs on leash. Dress for the day’s weather. Insect repellent is recommended year round as a precaution against Lyme Disease.
