More Spring Hikes Added to our May Calendar!

More Spring Hikes Added to our May Calendar!

The spring guided hike series continues strong this month, with another 8 walks covering topics like nature, birding, history, and geology now added to the calendar!

And more good news:  new guidelines on outdoor group sizes has meant that we can increase our capacity significantly throughout the month (and hopefully for the remainder of the spring and summer)!  We hope that this will mean enough space for every member of our community interested in joining us for a hike!

May highlights include an ecology-focused walk with Prof. Colin Orians of Tufts and Julia Osborne of Winchester Trails, 2 more hikes led by Boot Boutwell, 2 birdwatching outings, the return of “Rocky Ramblings” with Tom Eid, 2 Long Pond walks with Winchester Trails, and more.
