The DFG and MassWildlife will host a speaking program with NQTA and offer a short walk to see trail work and habitat management activity on the Tully Trail.
Afterwards, the NQTA invites participants to explore a nearby, newly flagged portion of the Tully Trail near the Bioreserve Rock on the Tully Mountain WMA off Tully Road. Park at 485 Tully Road, Orange, at the Busby residence across the road from the WMA.
Under the terms of the approved Trail Management Plan, NQTA may conduct trail maintenance activities on six miles of trail segments of the 22-mile Tully Trail.
