Alewife Walk & Talk

May 16, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Join Don Reimer, local naturalist, in a walk from Payson Park in Warren along the Georges River to learn why alewives are important to the ecology of freshwater, estuarine, and marine environments. Alewives tie our ocean, rivers and lakes together, providing vital nutrients and forage needed to make healthy watersheds. They are a prey item for osprey, eagles, great blue heron, loons and other fish-eating birds. This walk follows a wooded trail that leads along the old canal channel and up to the head of tide. Mornings are usually quite active at this time of year, with some good variety of bird and animal life.

Meet at Payson Park on Route 90, just west of the Georges River. Please wear sturdy shoes, and bring binoculars and cameras.
