In early summer look for the grass-loving Bobolinks at Lake Wampanoag in Gardner. Later the fields are covered with aster, goldenrods, and milkweeds that attract many species of butterflies including Monarchs. At the same time, look for the numerous and various species of dragonflies as they cruise and hunt over the flowers. A walk in the woods will bring you to a Balsam Fir and Red Spruce forest, an uncommon habitat in Worcester County. Keep your eyes peeled for old or current signs of moose.
