Guided Forest walks – Saturday

The Southborough Trails Committee and Stewardship Committee hare rescheduled their “Family-Friendly Nature Walks in the Forest”.

The special event originally scheduled in April for Planet Palooza was rained out. The committees are now promoting “Take Two” (both a second chance, and two chances to go on the guided walk).

Attendance is limited and pre-registration is required.

The walks are on trails in the Town Forest at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land, which is generally open to the public for hiking. The event page promotes what’s special about the guided walks led by former ranger Dan Harvey:

Explore the outdoors with your family. Get to know the trails, learn about native wildlife, observe and identify plants, trees, and signs of animals. And, check out the new interpretative sign to learn about wood frogs and the spotted salamanders.

This will be an easy walk on trails that meander throughout the forest. The walk is appropriate for children and families but not strollers. The wooded trails are mostly flat with some small hills.

The walks are scheduled to take place Saturday, May 13 at 9:00 and 11:00 am (though attendees are asked to arrive about 5-10 minutes early). Each walk is expected to last about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
