Discover the Signature Trees of Mount Hope Farm
August 23, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Bristol Land Conservation Trust and Mount Hope Farm invite you to an evening dedicated to our finest trees! After a brief Welcome & Introduction at the Barn across from the Governor Bradford House, we will join professional arborist Matt Largess for a closer look at some of the Signature Trees of Mount Hope Farm. We will explore some of the trees around the Governor Bradford House (native, introduced/ naturalized) and then walk down around the Duck Pond. Bristol is well known for its trees and Mount Hope Farm is no exception. We’ll learn about what makes a healthy tree, their role in nature and about tree threats. If you’re not a tree hugger now, you will be after a Tree Walk with Matt!!!
This easy paced walk is suitable for dogs on leash and strollers, but is not fully handicapped accessible. Please dress for the evening’s weather. Bug protection is recommended at dusk. If the evening is hot, bring some water. Don’t forget your camera!
Mount Hope Farm is located at 250 Metacom Ave on Route 136 about 1.5 miles north of Mount Hope Bridge or about 3 miles south of the Warren/ Bristol Town line on Route 136. From Points North – take 95 South to 195 East crossing over into Massachusetts – Take Exit 2 (136 South).
Follow 136 South (Metacom Avenue) looking for the Bristol Police Station on your right. Farm entrance is located approx. 1 1/2 miles further south. Turn left into the Main Entrance where near the Governor Bradford House, parking attendants and/or signs will direct you to parking.
