About the Event
Join Women of the Woods (WoW) for a ~3 mile socially distanced summer hike at this nice Middlesex Land Trust preserve. We will spend some time learning how to read maps to avoid getting lost and what to do if you think you are lost or turned around. The trails at the Palmer-Taylor Preserve go through forests, fields and even a tunnel beneath an old railway line that is now the Airline Trail. There are some ups and downs, but nothing sustained. To keep the group small, we are offering this hike on both Sun, July 18 at 5:30 PM and Tues, July 20 at 8:30 AM. Space limited to 12 women per hike. Masks are not required for this program. This hike is co-sponsored by the Middelsex Land Trust.
Please wear hiking shoes and bring a pack with plenty of water, a snack and perhaps a raincoat or an extra layer (for our sit spot).
Women of the Woods is a program of Everyone Outside. In addition to walking, we will take the time to admire the beauty around us, learn a bit about the flora or fauna, do some exercises to connect with the natural world (mostly sitting quietly) and enjoy each other's company. This program is part of our Women of the Woods (WoW) programing and is meant for women or female identifying people only, please.
If you have been to program or two, please consider making a donation to Everyone Outside. Suggested donation $5 to $20 per hike. We depend on donations from people like you to make our programs possible. Click here for more information on ways you can donate to Everyone Outside. Our WoW hikes, our children’s programs and other Everyone Outside activities either have a sliding scale fee structure or are free (with a request for a donation from those who are able). We depend on our supporters to make our programs acessable, regardless of financial need. Your donation is greatly appreciated!
Women of the Woods is supported, in part, by a grant from the Community Foundation of Middlesex County's Sari Rosenbaum Fund for Women and Girls.
Registration required. Directions will be sent to those that register and registrants will be notified via email if the hike is postponed or cancelled due to weather.
