Looking to find people who like to get out and do activities during weekdays when everyone else is at work? Most meetup groups cater to the 9-5 crowd, this one doesn't. We may have activities on the weekends and evenings as well, but we're going to focus on the weekday mornings and afternoons. Including, but not limited to hiking, biking, kayaking, walking, lunch, brunch, movies, museums, fairs, festivals, live music, art, crafts, and much more.
What do I mean by "Metro Northwest"? I'm based in Littleton, and envision meeting in any of the surrounding towns such as Westford, Groton, Chelmsford, Lowell, Carlisle, Acton, Concord, Maynard, Sudbury, Lincoln, Boxboro, Stow, Hudson, Harvard, Bolton, Ayer, Shirley, Lunenburg, Pepperell, Dunstable, Groton, Tyngsborough, Tewksbury, Billerica, Bedford, and surrounding towns. People from anywhere are welcome to join, the events will be focused on this geographical area.
Let's meet in the parking lot at Liberty Field on Liberty Square Road in Boxboro. This hike will be over two miles and will likely take more than an hour.
Patch Hill Conservation Area is the largest conservation parcel owned by the Town of Boxborough. Patch Hill Conservation Area also likely ranks highest for wildlife habitat and overall bio-diversity, supporting numerous vernal pools, rare species, several types of forest community, and protecting the headwaters of Guggins Brook. Patch Hill itself, also known as Goat Hill, is a glacial drumlin, the summit of which is either the second or third highest point in Boxborough, depending on the source of information consulted.
