First Day Hikes are free, guided hikes offered each year on New Year’s Day. The program started in Massachusetts in 1992 and has since gone nationwide. The hikes are intended to promote an alternate way of celebrating the New Year by going outside, getting exercise, and enjoying local nature and history. This year join our volunteer naturalists, Mike Quinlan and Gordon Reynolds, on an exploration of the Sanctuary’s extensive trail system. See what the Sanctuary looks like naked, when the leaves are off the trees. Dress for the weather. Sturdy footwear, binoculars, and cameras recommended. Ages 10 and older. Free. Registration required.
