Monthly Seasonal Walks - Great Meadows NWR

What a winter it has been!  But the warming sun, singing birds, and fattening buds reassure us that spring is poised to bloom.  Join Cherrie to greet the flowers, water creatures, and returning birds that fill the refuge with exuberant life each spring.  Dress in layers even on warmer days...the refuge trails are often cooler by 5-10ยบ in spring due to prevailing breezes blowing over chilled waters.  Rubber boots or waterproof footgear are recommended in March and April.  

Sunday, March 22, 3-5 pm  Rescheduled from 3/15 due to weather and trail conditions

Sunday, April 12, 3-5 pm  Some flooding, wear rubber boots.

Sunday, May 10, 3-5 pm 

Any cancellations or instructions due to weather or flooded trails
will be posted in red after each date, 24 hrs before walk time.

Open to all ages.  No pre-registration required.  Donations will be gratefully accepted.

Co-sponsored with Friends of the Assabet River NWR and Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program

Sense of Place and the Art of Walking
DeCordova Sculpture Park, Sandy Pond Road, Lincoln, MA
Thursday, July 24, 6:30 pm

Join me for a summer evening walk through the sculpture park where we will attune our senses to the communion between the resident artworks and the deCordova's unique landscape.  I will be guiding participants to open to the light, liveliness, form and pattern, sound and scents, and personal inspirations that come together as a unique reflection of the season, place, and time of day.  Admission is free.  For more information, see
