Autumn 2016

Autumn Monthly Walks at Great Meadows NWR/Concord

Sunday, November 13, 2:30 pm - with sunset and record supermoon
Sunday, December 11, 2:30 pm

All walks run about two hours

Led by local naturalist, Cherrie Corey
Donations will be gratefully accepted.

Autumn brings beautiful transitions to the Great Meadows floodplain. Green gives way to burnished color, flowers fade, leaves fall, geese flock, muskrat lodges rise, gossamer billows, and sunsets burn their brightest hues of the year.  Join Cherrie to explore these marvels and more.

Open to all ages.  No pre-registration required.
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.  GPS: 177 Monsen Rd., Concord, MA abutter to refuge driveway.

  1. We were sorry the July full moon walk was cancelled, but a friend and I walked anyway and had a lovely time. we saw a weasel, 5 juvenile blue herons, and more. You got us out walking even without being there. Hope you are feeling better and thank you.
