Saturday, June 18, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Eco-Tour: Recreation Lake Shore Restoration at Lake Massapoag

Like many New England towns, Sharon, MA has its own recreational jewel, a small lake where children learn to swim and sail, enthusiasts fish, and kayakers and canoeists paddle. In heavy use since Colonial times, Lake Massapoag had developed worn and depleted areas along its shoreline, especially at the town park where dumping of beach sand and cutting of typical lakeside vegetation created their own problems.
