Join us for our free, guided trail walks on Thursdays. All walks are at 10:00 AM unless otherwise noted. We will visit various local conservation properties, including some of our Westerly Land Trust preserves. Walks are between 1 ½ to 3 hours and are open to all ages with our target group being agile seniors. Please keep in mind that these are wooded trails with stumps, roots and rocks so be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. If the weather is icy you should bring stabilizers or something for traction. Bring snowshoes if there is a lot of snow. Our hikes leave promptly so please arrive on time.
