The Nashua River Watershed Association will be leading a guided trail walk at the Pine Meadow Conservation area in Ayer Sunday from 1-2 p.m.

Al Futterman, NRWA's Land Programs Director, will be leading the walk and providing "naturalist observations" about what can be seen at this property. The trail walk will last approximately one hour and cover roughly two miles. The walk will proceed in a light rain, but not a heavy storm.

This guided trail walk, one in a series of eleven hikes in eleven different communities, is part of NRWA's Outdoor Wellness Walking Program. The trail walks are intended to introduce people to properties in their area where they can walk for exercise. A full list of the 11 walks, and a schedule of our Healthy Lifestyles and Wellness Lecture and Film series, can be viewed by visiting Upcoming Programs and Events at

The trailhead for this walk is on Groton-Harvard Road in Ayer just south of the Ayer Transfer Station. A small parking area is located immediately across the road.

This trail walk is free and open to the public, funded in part by a grant from the Nashoba Valley Community Healthcare Fund. For the comfort of all, no dogs please. Pre-registration is encouraged for planning purposes, and for notification in case of inclement weather.
