Botanical Report on the Mason Quarry Conservation Area

According to the report:

“In 2013, the New England Wild Flower Society conducted a botanical inventory of the Mason Quarry Conservation Area for the Town of Mason. The inventory covered the quarry parcel (E-26 and E-27), Downs Forest (E-36), Beck lot (E-38), Jefts lot (E-28), the Coyne Wildlife Sanctuary (E-22), plus two small triangular parcels East of the railroad tracks on Scripps Lane (Appendix A).

…This botanical report includes the results of the inventory, a discussion of the findings, visuals aides such as maps and photographs, and management recommendations for the Area.”

This project was made possible by a generous donation from Catherine Schwenk.

Maps are formatted for printing at 30×36 inches at about 100 dpi, and contain images of around 3,000 x 3,600 pixels. You can print them at smaller sizes, but the smaller the size, the less detail you’ll be able to see. Larger maps formatted at 300 dpi are available. They are about 30-40 MB each. For more information, contact the Conservation Commission.
