Did you know that one of the largest freshwater marshes in greater Boston is found at Cutler Park? The glacial deposits in the park have also created vernal pools and a very interesting kettle hole bog. Join Newton Conservators volunteer and MassWildlife Deputy Director Jon Regosin on a walk to explore the wetlands of Cutler Park. We will meet in the parking lot at Kendrick Pond and walk the trail out to Powell’s Island across a boardwalk through the marsh.  Please be prepared for an approximately 3.5 mile round trip hike. We should be able to keep our feet dry, but we will go briefly off trail to better view the bog.
