10th Anniversary History & Nature Walk!

Jan 28, 2021 by

Update: Registration full as of Saturday morning — email FriendsoftheGlen [at] gmail [dot] org to get on a waiting list.
Strict attendance limit – email registration required
Come out of hibernation as we begin our 10th Anniversary year in Glen Providence Park! 

Over the past 10 years, we have both led and attended many nature walks in the park. Join as we restart our monthly events – with Covid protocols in place – and look forward to the next 10 years! We’ll tell 10 of our favorite historical stories, share 10 of our favorite winter plants, and why not 10 of our favorite park animals, whether or not they make an appearance! The walk will be led by park history buff Stephanie Gaboriault and our native plant guru Marcia Tate.


COVID protocols:
  • Registration is required. Strict attendance limit of 12 people – please register by emailing FriendsoftheGlen [at] gmail [dot] com
  • In order to stay physically distanced on our narrow trails and be able to hear, we will try having all participants linked to a conference call with Stephanie & Marcia. So a cell phone and headphones/AirPods are required. The conference call number will be provided to registered participants. We will see how it works! 
  • Masks are required, of course.


Regular logistics:

  • Free!
  • Meet at the main entrance at 550 W. State St., Media
  • Rain, snow, or shine**
  • Estimated distance: 1-1.5 miles
  • Estimated time: 2 hours
  • Be prepared for stream crossings, steep hills, and uneven (possibly icy or muddy) terrain: wear sturdy walking shoes, bring a hiking pole if you use one, and you never know when you’ll want binoculars!
  • **Event is rain or shine, but if the weather is terrible – or in the event of high winds – we’ll email registered participants by 12:30pm on Saturday whether we will need to cancel.
