Excited for Thanksgiving and all the delicious food that comes with it? Make sure to stay active this week before and after your Thanksgiving feast! Here are a few good outdoor workouts:

The We Walk the Woods program is continuing on into the winter, so join them on Wednesday, November 21 before Thanksgiving Day. Work up an appetite on the hour and a half long, moderately paced walk. Appropriate for all ages, the walk begins at 10:00 am at Harold Parker State Forest in North Andover.

Burn off those Thanksgiving calories with the Breakheart-Fells Weekly Hikes program’s last hike of the season! On Sunday, November 25, join the group for a three hour hike covering several miles through the Middlesex Fells to Whip Hill. The hike begins at 11:00 am at the Middlesex Fells Reservation in Stoneham.

If you’re still feeling a little sluggish, join the Southeastern Massachusetts Adult Walking Club of Blue Hills Reservation on their walk on Sunday, November 25. This week’s walk will be moderately paced covering some hilly terrain. Meet at the Donovan School in Randolph at 1:00 pm to participate in this three mile walk.

The Turtles are Coming

With a migration pattern that stretches thousands of miles, it is no surprise that Massachusetts is home to four types of turtles during the summer, all of them protected by local and international law.
