Moreland Woods Survey

The date has at last been set for local biologists and naturalists to begin the surveying of Moreland Woods in an effort to catalog species on behalf of the Greater Worcester Land Trust. Everyone involved in the effort can't make it there the same day, so &e and I will be taking a look at fungi and Coleoptera on Tuesday in the company of perhaps one or two other investigators. Others will be at the site on Wednesday and Thursday while I'm in Florida.

The site is in the northern part of the city (map), bounded by Moreland Street to the north and west and by Old Brook Drive to the east. I have only a vague notion of what might be in there and whether any of it will justify use of a grant to protect the place, but we'll find out soon.
