Featured Sighting: Snapping Turtle
This snapping turtle was
photographed just hanging out at the dam at Briggs Pond in September.
The turtle was motionless for quite some time allowing the photographer
to go home, get her camera and take these photos. (Photos by Leslie Koval)

Massapoag Trail Restored
2003, Sharon Friends of Conservation has been working with the Sharon
Conservation Commission to improve one of the Town’s premier
assets, the Massapoag Trail. As of this writing, I am pleased to
announce that two major projects have been completed. With these,
the entire trail from Pond St. to Belcher St. has been restored.
There remain to do only a short boardwalk and few additional signs
and blazes, which should be in place by mid-spring. Read
