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.”

If you would prefer not to spend any time indoors this February break, then join us for ice fishing in Hopkinton or Beach Comber’s Bingo in Waquoit.  We can’t wait to see you there!
