      The 195-acre Ames Family Open Space may be accessed from Evergreen Trail (via Boggy Hole Road).

      A variety of trails crisscross the property, including the nearly 2-mile “blue” trail. As you hike a distance on this trail, heading east, enjoy a tranquil view of beaver ponds. As you read on, note how beaver habitats benefit a host of wildlife and improve ecology.

      The Open Space Commission created wildlife observation areas on this trail as part of a beavers & birds conservation/education program.

      Natural landscape architects, beavers initially dam slow-flowing streams in forested areas. As some older, larger trees die, they offer prime nesting sites for great blue herons, wood ducks and woodpeckers. Openings in the forest canopy provide increased sunlight and nutrients for aquatic vegetation. Invertebrates, like crayfish, dragonflies, damselflies and fishing spiders become more common. The invertebrates attract insect-eating wildlife, such as tree swallows, eastern kingbirds and bats.
