Walkers: Nashua River Watershed Assoc. is looking for you!

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

Calling all walkers!

The Nashua River Watershed Association’s Outdoor Wellness Walking Program is looking for more participants. We’re walking every week, Monday through Thursday at 8 a.m., on the Nashua River Rail Trail.

These wellness nature walks are being led by NRWA’s land, water, and education program directors. We walk for about 30 to 40 minutes each day; we accommodate all walking paces. Along with the exercise, we are having fun learning more about the plants and animals along the trail. We even spotted turkey hens with their chicks this past week. Don’t just do your walking at the mall or on a treadmill. Don’t sit at home wishing you could find a way to get out and get started on a walking program. Come join us for fresh air, interesting sights and information, and good company.

NOWW walks are free and open to the public. You can walk with us one day a week up to four days a week. All ages are welcome (no dogs please). The locations of our walks are:

Ayer: Mondays at 8 a.m.

Pepperell: Tuesdays at 8 a.m.

Groton: Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 a.m.

Pre-registration is required. Meeting location for walk will be provided upon registration. These walks are funded in part by a grant from the Nashoba Valley Community Healthcare Fund. To pre-register, or for more information, please contact Al Futterman, NRWA Land Programs Director, at 978-448-0299, or email AlF@NashuaRiverWatershed.org. The NRWA is a non-profit environmental organization. Learn more about our work at www.NashuaRiverWatershed.org. We hope you’ll join us and get walking, get healthy, and learn more about our beautiful watershed!
