An Autumn Walk


Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Fall 2021

Mid-autumn is a beautiful time of year as nature begins to prepare for winter. On these walks we’ll focus on plant ID as we search for what is still flowering as well as plants that are in fruit. We’ll also look for winter weeds, those hardy herbaceous (non-woody) plants whose skeletons decorate the autumn and winter landscape. Join naturalist Boot Boutwell for a more leisurely walk at Arlington’s Great Meadows or a two and a half mile hike from Wright-Locke Farm to the summit of Whipple Hill, the highest point in Lexington. The hike is over some rocky terrain, and if the weather is clear, we’ll be able to see Mt. Wachusett, 40 miles to the west. Please note: Meeting location and safety guidelines will be emailed as part of the Registration Confirmation email. All walks meet rain or shine. Children ages 10+ are welcome to register if accompanied by a registered adult.
