Heart Healthy Trail Walk in Shirley, MA
Tuesday, September 27, 2016 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
All are invited to join the NRWA for our free Heart Healthy Trails walk on Tuesday evening, September 27th, beginning at 5:30 p.m., when we’ll explore the Esker Trail in the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley. We’ll take a short, approximately 20-minute, guided walk on a trail that is appropriate for easy or moderate activity levels. The meeting location to start will be at the intersection of Walker Road with Filter Bed Road in Ayer. There is parking on Filter Bed Road. View a Google map. This trail tour is free, open to all ages and all communities. Join us for exercise and to experience the beauty of our local trails.
As part of its Heart Healthy Trails project, the NRWA is seeking to introduce people to trails in their own “greater backyard” that are accessible to everyone, even those with some physical limitations, including young children or elders. The goal of the project is to identify easy to moderately strenuous trails to help people feel comfortable that they know the location of the trailhead and parking areas, and to motivate people to make walking on these trails part of a healthy exercise routine. The NRWA encourages everyone to get outdoors and connect with the natural world for their own well-being and that of the environment. The NRWA’s Heart Healthy Trails project is funded by a grant from the Bruce J. Anderson Foundation.
