Visiting Boston April 20-23, 2017

Post by Zach_Lim » April 16th, 2017, 10:00 pm

Hello Boston/Mass herpers,

I will be visiting Boston (staying in the Cambridge area) for a few days/nights this coming weekend. Although my trip is not herp-centric (I am actually visiting to see a bunch of bands play that weekend - The Templars, Fit For Abuse, Battle Ruins, etc), I was hoping to maybe get out and see something! I won't have a car, so I will be stuck in the immediate area. Are there any remaining pockets of natural land that still have Herp's? Should I just be looking for anywhere "green" on Google Maps and giving it a shot? Are temperatures okay this time
Of year for phibs and/or reptiles?

Short intro- my name is Zach, I live in San Francisco, regularly contribute to the database, and take lots of photos which can be seen on Flickr or my Instagram @zacharge

Thanks!

You can walk around the Fens near Fenway Park ... turtles (RES). Easy to get to from Cambridge.

A much more exciting local is Blue Hills ... hike the "mountains". Google the fauna ... there are several unique species in the park. You can get there via bus/subway
