Locals love to admire mother nature as she continues to amaze us with the gorgeous plants flourishing at Stinchfield. You will not stop talking about how beautiful the stars looked – This is truly an amazing experience! Please note to be careful of the thorny rose bush that was planted to create a maintenance-free fence along Stinchfield Woods property. Often times the prickly shrub will grow into the walkways so be aware of where you are walking – Volunteers and the Natural Resources and Environment are doing their best to give attention to the invading stems.
