New England's Roadside Ecology
New England’s Roadside Ecology guides readers through 30 spectacular natural sites all within an easy walk from the road. The sites include the forests, wetlands, alpines, dunes, and geologic ecosystems that make up New England. Author Thomas Wessels, an ecologist and professor emeritus at Antioch College New England, is the perfect guide.
Each entry starts with the brief description of the level of difficulty of the hike—all are gentle to moderate and cover no more than two miles. Entries also include turn-by-turn directions and clear descriptions of the flora, fauna, and fungi the reader will encounter along the way. Readers will also delight in the accessible bites of natural history they will learn along the way. New England’s Roadside Ecology is a must-have for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, and tourists in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
