Calendar of Programs and Events


Winter 2016

Winter Walks at Great Meadows NWR/Concord
Sunday, January 17, 2:30-4:30 pm
Sunday, February 14, 3-5 pm
Sunday, March 13, 3-5 pm

Rescheduling or cancellation due to weather will be posted here.

Though the season began with record warmth, ice is now forming on the open water and a first snowfall has whitened the trails.  Eagles will continue making daily visits until all water freezes solid, and young hawks are practicing their hunting skills.  Geese make daily flights out to fields and back and a variety of diving and dabbling ducks splash and feed in the open channels.  As winter sets in, the earth and sky merge in a shared palette of color, shadow, and reflections.  Join Cherrie for walks of winter revelation and sunset splendors.  Dress warmly, head to toe!

Open to all ages.  No pre-registration required.

Donations will be gratefully accepted.

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.
