This week, work off all those leftover Thanksgiving calories and then get into the holiday spirit as we transition into December. Check out some of this week’s events:

If you’re still feeling full from Thanksgiving, start your December off with a walk through Virginia Woods as part of the Let’s Take a Walk program. The walk, which is moderately paced over gentle terrain, takes place on Saturday, December 1, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm and meets at the John Botume House Visitor Center in the Middlesex Fells.

Jump right into the holiday spirit with the Holiday Toy Drive and Mountain Bike Ride or Hike on December 2 at Blue Hills Reservation. Donate a new, unwrapped toy to the annual collection and then enjoy a mountain bike ride at 10:00 am or the Houghton’s Pond hike at 1:00 pm.

Keep ringing in the holiday spirit with the Holiday Handbell Choir at Borderland State Park. Enjoy a performance by the Unity Church Handbell Choir on Sunday December 2 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Refreshments will be served.

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