Blackstone Parks Conservancy

Join us at Blackstone Field for two events on Saturday, October 17th and Sunday, October 18th.

On Saturday, October 17th, at 10:30 am, Nancy Nowak and Elena Riverstone, enthusiasts of these species, will lead the Moss and Mushroom Trail Walk.  This year to complement our annual fungus search in Blackstone Park, we will also be looking at the different kinds of moss that grow in the park. Often overlooked or taken for granted, moss, like fungus,has a unique life story well worth leaning about. If it is too dry to find many mushrooms, we’ll focus our efforts on the modest moss!

On Sunday, October 18th, at 1pm, The Goats are Coming.  See goats devour poison ivy!  Observe a goat being milked! Learn about different kinds of goats! Find out what poison ivy really looks like…  This event is co-hosted by the Blackstone Parks Conservancy and Silk Tree Farm.
