HIKE
When: Saturday, November 18, 2017
Where: Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary (280 Eliot Street, Natick, MA 01760; use directions in link instead of GPS)
Event Captain: Erica Bernstein (president@wellnesswarriorsboston.org)

 

We will start off at the Visitor Center at 10 am and then leave at 10:15am to explore the Charles River at the Broadmoor. “An expansive retreat along Indian Brook and the Charles River, Broadmoor is an ever-changing environment teeming with wildlife: dragonflies darting, turtles basking, otters leaving tracks in the mud or snow, and more than 150 species of birds. Easy-to-moderate well-groomed trails lead you through the shade of mature woodlands into open fields and along the edges of vibrant streams, ponds, and marshland.” There is an all accessible 1/4 mile boardwalk and loops for folks who prefer not to go for a longer hike. A map of the trails can be found here.

 

Bring your lunch for a POTLUCK PICNIC on site after the hike and celebrate November birthdays! Erica will have coolers with ice to store your items if needed.

 

Parking is available on site and is free. Entrance fee to the Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary is $5 (Erica will prepay so just give her your $5 when and if you can).

 

Things to bring: Hiking clothes (ticks and poison ivy may still be around), sturdy shoes (trails are well kept and you likely won’t need hiking boots), water, your potluck lunch.
