The museum building includes expert explanations of the area's progression as a forest. Clear explanations presented by university professors. Focuses on the Quabbin Reservoir and watershed areas. Nicely done.

The pond in the map is called Harvard Pond or sometimes, Brooks Pond. The roads around the pond and forest are absolutely beautiful to walk with only one problem. I can't rate it as excellent because the area around the pond has a large population of ticks.

Thank GageMan
