Happy Halloween everyone!
On Wednesday, November 2, parents and nature-loving children (recommended ages are 5-11) should head to the DCR’s headquarters in Revere at 2 p.m. for ‘Sea Turtle Surprises’. This is an exciting, hands-on learning adventure through DCR’s Coastal Awareness Program to help children understand the importance of sea turtles and to learn more about their threatened habitats.
For those with a passion for the stars, come to Astronomy Night at DCR’s Borderland State Park. On Friday, November 4 at 7 p.m., join Steve Clougherty and other local astronomers to look at Jupiter, the first-quarter moon, and the fall constellations. Bring your binoculars; large telescopes will be available with instructors. Cloudy skies will cancel, so please call the park (508-238-6566) on the day of the event to confirm.
Last, but not least, this activity is for the very active and adventurous. On Saturday, November 6, DCR's Blue Hills Reservation is offering a strenuous and rugged eight-mile Skyline Hike over the peaks and valleys of the Skyline Trail. This hike will run approximately 5-7 hours, and is recommended for ages 16 and up. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call 617-698-1802 (ext. 212) to register and to find out the meeting location and time for this event.
