John Johansen Conservation Area, Mashpee – Slideshow

John Johansen Conservation Area
Written by Brian Tarcy

MASHPEE – Death, life and a moving river were the attractions at the newly discovered (to us)  John Johansen Conservation Area, which leads to the Mashpee River.

The color palette was mostly brown and green. In many cases, it was only brown and green. Change, decay, a vernal pool, and a moving river of time everywhere.

In the midst of all that winter loss, there was sun and there was green, with promises of spring revival. Always.
