Thanks to Steve Sherlock of Franklin Matters, for inviting me onto his radio Show Franklin Matters.
Steve is an ardent walker himself, offering great “walk abouts” in the Franklin, MA area. He covers extensively in his daily newsletter all things Franklin, MA. He epitomizes the concept of public service, helping raise awareness of community concerns, the inner workings of local government, and documents as many public meetings in Franklin as he is able to.
Our conversation ran 44 minutes, and offered me a chance to talk about partners I have collaborated with, like the Ten Mile River Watershed Council, and the Blackstone Heritage Corridor, some of my own challenges, and the genesis of my newest book, Finding Easy Walks Wherever You Are. Thanks so much Steve, for sharing your platform with Easy Walks! Happy trails!
