Discover the many outdoor charms of Westborough through hikes and activities guided by volunteers from the Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT). Each event description will include a meeting location, estimated distance, duration, and level of difficulty. All are welcome.
WCLT acts as stewards for over 400 acres of land in Westborough including the Charm Bracelet trail system -- a community-wide network of over 50 miles of trails. https://westboroughlandtrust.org
The fine print: Although hiking is generally a very safe activity, there are small risks of mosquito or tick-borne disease, exposure to poison ivy, and injury (e.g., twisted ankle). We will do our very best to minimize those risks, but participation in these activities is at your own personal risk. WCLT will require that each adult participant sign a "Release and Waiver" for each event on behalf of themselves and any accompanying minor children.
Since the weather is chilly, this event isn't technically a walk, but it could inspire walks when spring comes again! The Westborough Community Land Trust will present a free slide talk by respected nature photographer Garry Kessler. He will share his insights and images from years of birding in Downeast Maine. Last year Garry received rare permission to land at Machias Seal Island, the only offshore location where visitors can go ashore and photograph puffins up close.
