Celebrate the first day of winter at Kelly Rink in Jamaica Plain with a Winter Skate! There will be hot cider and popcorn to wrap up the year’s celebrations of the 20th anniversary of Southwest Corridor Park. Tuesday, December 21 is the shortest day of the year. But don’t let the darkness get you down! Come to Walden Pond State Reservation in Concord for a Winter Solstice Walk. A similar event will take place Sunday, featuring readings of seasonal writings by Thoreau. And get your bird-watching binoculars ready: next Wednesday marks the start of the annual Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey.
