May 7, 2016 by Beth Colt

Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation staff will lead a free guided walk through the scenic Caroline Tuthill Preserve of oak and pitch pine forest and wooded wetlands, with expansive views of the salt marshes along Sengekontacket Pond. The preserve was formed by the Cape Cod lobe of the Late Wisconsin glacier and includes glacial features such as high knobs and sunken kettleholes. Lady’s Slippers grow along the trail and at the foot of the preserve’s oak trees; we hope to find some in bloom.  Meet at the Trailhead kiosk on the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Rd in Edgartown. Directions: From the Triangle intersection in Edgartown, travel 0.4 miles west on the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road to the roadside parking and trailhead kiosk. From the four-way stop at the junction of the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road and Barnes road, travel east 3.7 miles on the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road to the roadside parking and kiosk. The walk will be held rain or shine.
