Visit to Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary: August 18, 2019

Went for a walk through this wonder Mass Audubon site over boardwalks and through the woods. There were more turtles than could be counted, many sunning themselves in neat lines along branches sticking out of the water. In addition to these observations we saw geese as well as a hawk. It was shady and very humid. There were also quite a lot of fungi along the trail, but I was on parent duty and wasn't able to make as many observations as I would have like to. This is a great place for woods walks with little ones, as well as a great place to see both aquatic and forest critters in close proximity.
