* Sold Out* WINTER SOLSTICE SUNRISE

Date: Sunday, December 21, 2014, Time: 7:00-8:00am
Location: 
Half Moon Meadow Brook, Boxborough
Leader/Speaker: George Krusen, SVT Member
If you’re an early riser, or even if you’re not, this is an outing not to miss. On the shortest day of the year, view the winter solstice sunrise through the stone structures (allegedly Native American ceremonial stone structures) at Half Moon Meadow Brook. The sunlight bores through the stones for a magnificent viewing. It’s a beautiful way to start the winter. 
 
This program is now sold out.  You may add your name to the wait list, in case anyone cancels.

Trail Walk - Turenne Wildlife Habitat

Date: Monday, December 22, Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Location: 
 Turenne Wildlife Habitat, Southborough
Leader/Speaker: Alicia Coleman, SVT Regional Conservation Coordinator, MassLIFT AmeriCorps member
Come explore the living history of Southborough during this nature walk. It is likely that the property was previously used as a wood lot in the early part of the century. Multi-trunked 75 to 80 year old oak trees support this hypothesis. The Bay Path, which runs through the southern end of Turenne and the northern end of the Southborough Town Forest, is an historic road lined on both sides with stonewalls. 
This event is free but we ask that you do register.
