Autumn Great Meadows Walks 2015

Part of a continuing series of monthly walks led by Cherrie Corey, 
local naturalist, exploring the seasonal wonders and landscapes 
of Great Meadows NWR in Concord, MA

Sunday, September 20, 3-5 pm
Sunday, October 18, 3-5 pm
Saturday, November 21, 2:30-4:30 pm (sunset walk)
Sunday, December 13, 2:30-4:30 (sunset walk)

This fall marks seven years of Great Meadows monthly walks and other special programs, which I have offered since 2008.  During this time, some 600 wonderfully interested and engaged participants have joined me to explore and celebrate the beauty and rich diversity of this historic, riverside landscape and refuge.

Please join me in this eighth season of discovery and learning along the dike trail!  Autumn -- the season of greatest change -- stirs us with exquisite and ephemeral beauty, bountiful harvests, the last resilient flowers and insects of the year.  Colors peak and fade, migrants fill the skies then are gone, muskrat lodges appear, autumn spiders balloon and drape their gossamer, and the sunsets deepen their fiery glow.  Donations will be gratefully accepted.

 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.

For questions or to be added to the emailing list for notice of these and impromptu evening walks, contact Cherrie at or 978-760-1933.
