Step Out with ‘Hike-A-Thon’ November 27-29

Press Release
November 13, 2020

LINCOLN, MA.—Mass Audubon invites one and all to head outdoors during Hike-a-thon, taking place statewide Friday, November 27 through Sunday, the 29th.

Hike-a-thon’s goal is to encourage as many people as possible to get outside on the weekend after Thanksgiving and discover for themselves how time spent in the natural world benefits both physical and mental health.

Mass Audubon’s statewide network of wildlife sanctuaries features hundreds of great walking pathways, easy, intermediate, and more challenging; as well as universally-accessible All Persons Trails at a dozen properties. And selected sanctuaries will be offering guided hikes during Hike-a-thon.

But anyone can join Hike-a-thon from anywhere, from strolls around the neighborhood to multi-mile forays through state parks or wildlife sanctuaries. Learn more at massaudubon.org/hikeathon.
