 The Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust and The Trustees of Reservations teamed up in 2009 to help conserve a critical five-acre parcel along Clay Pit Brook in Lowell's Pawtucketville neighborhood, resulting in the Hawk Valley Farm CR co-held by both organizations. Earlier this year LPCT offered a wildlife tracking event on the CR property on a snowy Saturday morning, treating those in attendance with a first-hand glimpse of signs left by a variety of animals that depend on this urban wild -- including fisher, deer, and fox.
