In honor of George Washington’s love for nature, we have a plethora of events, workshops and activities to get you outside this week! The Department of Conservation and Recreation is hosting a variety of workshops to turn you into a skilled naturalist. Animal tracking can be a lot of fun, especially in the winter when paw prints mark up the snow or freeze in the mud. Join us in Hingham, North Easton, or Foxboro for a lesson on how to become an expert tracker.
A few activities better suited for the younger ones may be one of the animal workshops offered in Revere. From Wednesday through Friday there are a series of three one-hour lessons that will engage you and your child in the wonderful animal world. Featured lessons are “Bats in your Backyard,” “Sea Turtle Surprises,” and “Sweet Honeybees.”
