Winter Walk at Great Meadows - Saturday, February 13, 9-11 am

A continuing series of monthly walks exploring the landscape,plants, and seasonal wonders of Great Meadows in Concord. The interplay of snow, ice, wind, sunlight, and wild ramblers continually reshape the winter landscape. We'll explore the ephemeral beauty of frozen forms and changing light along the trail. Bundle up and wear appropriate footgear for prevailing conditions.

No pre-registration required. A $5/person voluntary donation will be gratefully accepted.

Led by Cherrie Corey, local naturalist, botanist, and photographer

Co-sponsored by Musketaquid Arts and Environment Program and Friends of the Assabet River NWR.

Meet at Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord, MA. Take Monsen Road, off Rte. 62 to the driveway on left where the road curves right.


  1. Hi Cherrie - I'm interested in attending this tomorrow, but I have a question: should I bring my snowshoes?

  2. Just a pair of warm boots should be fine. There's very little snow now except in the woods. We may walk around on the ice and crust in the woods by the river. If you're concerned about stability a walking stick might be helpful.
