The Winter Solstice Approaches
Adult Enrichment / Walking Tours -
Join naturalist Boot Boutwell in celebrating the season of the Winter Solstice, the time of year when the midday sun is at its lowest point in the sky. The solstices mark key turning points in the year and have been celebrated by many cultures throughout history. The Winter Solstice marks the shortest day (and the longest night) of the year. Join Boot Boutwell in celebrating the season of the Winter Solstice with a walk in Arlington’s Great Meadows to enjoy the beauty of nature as winter approaches. As usual, our focus will be on plant ID and natural history. The program will also include solstice history and lore, poetry, and a solstice story. 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.
