Urges Smith School to delay cutting grassy fields

The state owns land on Burts Pit Road in Northampton which it leases to Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School.

Please send a brief message to the Smith Voke website (http://www.smithtec.org/) urging the school not to cut its grassy fields until mid-July at the earliest. I’ve recently seen ground- and grassland-nesting birds scoping out these fields.

These birds are not doing well in Massachusetts, as forest succession takes over pasture. They need all the help they can get.
