This Saturday, trek to Belle Isle Marsh to spot spring migratory birds. Bring your own binoculars.

If birding isn’t your thing, take a stroll on the Charles River Esplanade instead. Head to the Hatch Shell  on Storrow Drive to kick off this spring exploration.

Looking for something a tad more difficult? Challenge yourself to a three mile hike with a DCR ranger in Milton this Sunday. This excursion promises to have you conquering three peaks before breakfast.
