Escape Black Friday: "Give Thanks for the Land" Instead!

Give Thanks for the Land with SVT on Black Friday
Give Thanks for the Land with SVT on Black Friday

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

This walk was originally scheduled for Cedar Hill in Northborough but has been relocated.
