Is hunting allowed on Harvard Forest and what is the policy?

Printer-friendly version

Except for a few intensive research areas, hunting is allowed at Harvard Forest in the seasons and according to the regulations of the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife.

The few intensive research areas where hunting is restricted are clearly posted. There is also no hunting allowed in the vicinity of Harvard Pond, which is a wildlife preserve, or at the Matthews Plantation in Hamilton, Mass.

See our Petersham map (2017) of the areas where hunting is restricted.
