Volunteers from The 300 Committee Land Trust will lead a Family Passport Walk on Saturday, May 17, at the Matt Souza Conservation Area in Hatchville from 1 to 3 PM. This event is a child-friendly, guided walk on easy trails through the wooded, protected parcel that runs along a portion of the Coonamessett River. Highlights include a herring run that ends in a weir at Coonamessett Pond, a stand of tall white pines, hilly trails connecting to the Dupee parcel with remnants of an historic dairy farm and open fields.
Participants will receive a free Passport to Falmouth’s Conservation Lands. The illustrated booklet is filled with information and activities to encourage hands-on learning.
The entrance to the Matt Souza Conservation Area is on Hatchville Road, half a mile west of the Sandwich Road intersection. Parking at the entrance is just west of Atamannsit Road, a private road. There is ample additional parking diagonally across the street at the pumping station, a little farther west.
