Finish Off Strong During Walktober’s Finale This Week!
The Last Green Valley, Inc.’s (TLGV) volunteer Walktober leaders and teams have over 20 exciting choices for you during this final week of the program. Attend as many as you can and finish Walktober in style!
The Halloween theme runs strong this week with some downtown Trick or Treating (listing #219), a scarecrow kingdom (listing #232), and a trick-a-trunk party (listing #233.) These activities are designed for children and family fun.
Other goose-bump inducers include spirits haunting the streets of Willimantic (listing #220), ancient ghosts in Norwich (listing #221), witch stories in Scotland (listing #227), a Halloween movie in Southbridge (listing #237), and magic & muggles in Killingly (listing #241).
There is history to discover this week, too. Walk the woods and learn the history of Griggs Pond (listing #224), take the Yantic Cemetery Civil War Tour (listing #225), listen to tales of the notables of Yantic Cemetery (listing #229), and celebrate where Weir painted (listing #230).
A little more to tickle your Walktober fancy is offered on a P&W train trip with the MA Bay RR Enthusiasts (listing #222), an autumn wild edibles walk with the 3 Foragers (listing #240), visually stunning vistas & geology at Coney Rock (listing #223), shaking hand with local heroes at the Southbridge Police Station and Fire Station (listings #226 & 228), dark skies glowing during part 2 of Enjoy the Dark Side (listing #234), and capturing night photography with Clarus Studios (listing #239).
Two quite different offerings from land trusts are available with a peaceful walk in Voluntown (listing #236) and an information-packed workshop in Southbridge (listing #238.)
Even more exploration is available for the kiddos and families, including a wilderness scavenger hunt (listing #231), and a hike on the back trails of Camp Laurel (listing #235).
