Spring Walks at Great Meadows NWR/Concord

Any necessary rescheduling or other updates will be posted here.

Join Cherrie for walks among spring wildflowers, returning birds, mating reptiles, splashing fish, and all of the sensual splendor of this awakening season. Wear layers for comfort out on the Dike Trail.

Open to all ages.  No pre-registration required.

Donations will be gratefully accepted.

Led by local naturalist, Cherrie Corey

Co-sponsored with Friends of the Assabet River NWR

Please note:  Refuge headquarters waives the entrance fee for these walks.  However, I encourage everyone to consider purchasing a $12 annual pass to help support critical visitor service needs at Great Meadows - Concord.

Meet at the information kiosk at Great Meadows NWR in Concord.  Take Rte. 62 to Monsen Rd.  Follow Monsen Rd. and turn left into refuge driveway when road turns sharply right.  Follow refuge road to the parking lot at the end.

Full Moon Walks

Sunday, May 21, 6:45 pm
Monday, June 20, 7 pm
Tuesday, July 19, 6:45 pm
Evening walks will run whether clear or cloudy. Beauty and magic are promised either way.

Join my full moon/evening walks this summer for special glimpses of refuge wildlife, serenades of night song, and the memorable beauty of the "golden hour."  Toward the end of each walk, we will watch the moon rise together and walk back in its light.  

Wear layers for changing temperatures and bring a small flashlight if your night vision, for the walk back, is poor.  Insect repellent is recommended, but please apply well away and down wind of others.

Each walk will last 1.5 - 2 hours.

Donations will be gratefully accepted.
