Escape Black Friday: "Give Thanks for the Land" Instead!
New Location: Memorial Forest in Sudbury
The tradition continues! SVT is once again leading our annual "Give Thanks for the Land" walk, but this year it will be held the day after Thanksgiving.
Avoid the mall and the traffic jams on Black Friday. Instead, join Executive Director Lisa Vernegaard on this moderate-to-fast-paced walk through our Memorial Forest Reservation in Sudbury. It's a great chance to enjoy some fresh air while working off your Thanksgiving feast. (No dogs, please.)
Friday, November 23
10:00 am to Noon
