Tor Hansen: A Deeper Look at the Twine Field Meadows

October 10, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

With the Twine Fields secured for conservation, Pond Road’s own naturalist, Tor Hansen, will return to take a deeper look at the fauna and the flora in Truro’s Twine Fields. Using his extraordinary photographs, presented in a slide show, we will explore resident and migratory fauna and floral components of Twine Field upland meadow in North Truro.  We will learn to identify what butterfly and moth species occur and utilize the natural resources of this important glacial sand plain grassland. Survey includes fauna supported by adjacent Pilgrim Pond and Marsh, featuring Mourning Cloak, Red Admiral, Red spotted Purple, silk moths, smaller hairstreaks, and species of Woodland Edges.
