Beaver Dam Conservation Area, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

Plymouth has a number of town-owned properties set aside for conservation.   Given humanity's penchant for thoroughly exploiting the land, this practice of protecting property in its natural state may prove to be one of the greatest legacies we ensure for our future generations. 

The Beaver Dam Conservation Area is located on Beaver Dam Road near the Manomet Waste and Recycling Center. Parking is along the road, maybe room for 6-8 vehicles.

A well-worn trail winds through the woods along Little Island Pond. I am fond of a two-mile out and back walk there. 

Little Island Pond. Sometimes we're all so busy talking to/at each other, we've forgotten how to stop and listen to the sounds of the planet around us.  Like a bird, chipmunk, or squirrel, standing alert, listening, looking, smelling, sensing all that is around them. Standing still and listening to the voice of the woods and earth.
