Already felt like you’ve spent too much time indoors this season? Feeling stressed about the holidays? Walk off the winter blues this week with these three programs:

The We Walk the Woods interpretive program is continuing through the winter, so on Wednesday, December 26, join the group for their weekly, moderately paced walk through the trails of Harold Parker State Forest. The walk begins at 10:00 am and ends at 11:30 am.

On Saturday, December 29, learn more about the wildlife around Walden Pond with the Winter Wildlife Tracks and Sign program. Get an indoor lesson about track identification with a wildlife expert and then apply your new knowledge on a two hour walk through the woods. This program takes place from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

If tracking isn’t your thing, join the Southeastern Massachusetts Adult Walking Club for their weekly walk on Saturday, December 29 at 1:00 pm. This week’s walk will be a moderate 3 mile loop along Healthy Heart Trail and around Middle Pond in the Blue Hills Reservation. Open to those 16 years of age and older.

For more great events happening this and every week, check out our outdoors calendar for events near you.
