Ipswich River Big Woods Hike - Sunday, November 18
Published: September 25, 2012
There’s a walk in the woods . . . and then there’s a walk in the woods with a naturalist. Bring your family and friends for a pre-Thanksgiving guided walk to discover what is happening in the world of nature as plants and animals prepare for winter.
Sanctuary naturalists will lead small groups as they venture out to the “Big Woods” on Averill’s Island. We will stop along the way to hear stories of the original settlers and learn about the fascinating cultural history of the sanctuary. We’ll look for animal signs as we hike through the woodlands and marshes, taking in the beauty of the muted colors of late autumn. We will be out for about two hours, so dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear. Warm up by the woodstove in the Barn upon your return. Hot drinks and homemade soup and desserts will be available for purchase beginning at 11:30 am, so feel free to come early to enjoy a bite to eat before you go out on your hike.
