Get outdoors or learn something new about your environment this weekend! This upcoming weekend is full of educational and hands-on outdoor events for residents and visitors of the Commonwealth. On Saturday, April 14, the next in the series of Growing Up WILD workshops will be held in Newton. This week’s workshop focuses on the role early childcare providers have in fostering a child’s sense of wonder about nature and the environment. The first of a two part seminar on Turkey hunting will also be held on Saturday. This seminar will take place in Shirley and is designed to support beginning female hunters – no previous experience required!

On Sunday, April 15, the Wildlife Walk Series will continue in Alewife, where expert naturalist David Brown will guide you through the Alewife Wildlife Reservation. This is a chance to see songbirds and other wildlife right here in Massachusetts! Dighton Rock State Park will also offer a hike that kids will love- it’s a hide and seek adventure to search for animals and their tracks.

The fishing season opens this week at the Wachusett, Sudbury and Quabbin Reservoirs. More information and fishing guides can be found here for the Wachusett and Sudbury Reservoirs and here for the Quabbin Reservoir.

Be sure to check out the Great Outdoors interactive Google calendar for a full calendar of Massachusetts outdoor events.
