Watershed Walk

Wachusett Reservoir Watershed Tributary Headwaters Zone, Mason Farm, Holden, MA

The expansive fields of the Wachusett Reservoir Watershed Zone are open to the public for hiking and bird watching. The extended hill climb leads up to a noted former dairy farm.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  1. I love old, expansive farms. Esp. with acres of open land like this. Not as many as there used to be, sadly. A lot here have returned to forest.

  4. Wonderful photos! I have had as many as four bluebirds at once in my yard this year. And I’m in a town. They make me think I’m in a Disney movie! Cinderella, for example.

      1. I LOVE wood carvings. My next Eagle post, I should share my 6 1/2 ft wood carving in my living room of an Eagle clutching a fish, perched on a 3 ft stump. I think you will like it. 😍
