About the Event
Join Women of the Woods for a 3 to 4-mile socially distanced hike at the East River Preserve. This preserve is wonderfully varied. Our hike will take us along the edge of old field, next to the tidal channels of the East River, near inland wetlands, through a wooded area with hundreds of boulders presumably left by the glaciers and more. The trail will be rocky at times and there will be lots of short ups and downs. To keep the group small, we are offering this hike on both Thurs, Nov 11 at 1 PM and Fri, Nov 12 at 9 AM. Space limited to 12 women per hike. Masks are optional for this program since it is all outside.
Please wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring a pack with water, a snack and dress for the weather. You may want to bring hiking poles if you like the extra support and stability they provide, especially in places where the trail is rocky and/or covered with leaves. Click here for a map.
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.
If you have been on a hike 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. Your donations keep our programs affordable and provide funding for scholarships for our other nature connection programs. 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.
