Open Space Inventory and Management Study - Milford, MA 

Upper Charles Conservation, Inc. retained Mason & Associates to assess wetlands, wildlife, and vegetation on a 127-acre site located in Milford, Massachusetts. The assessment was funded by a Riverways Grant awarded to Upper Charles Inc. by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Riverways Program. The site is located east of Route 85, and is in the center of a larger undeveloped area known as the Charles River Headwaters Area. Mason & Associates conducted surveys of vegetation, wetlands, wildlife, and vernal pool habitat. The firm prepared a technical report including recommendations for future management, incorporating the ecologically sensitive placement of a bicycle path along the railroad right-of-way, west of the property.
