Mon., Sept. 30, 6:30PM. Bellingham, MA Public Library, Finding Easy Walks Nearby. Join Marjorie Turner Hollman, author of three Easy Walks in Massachusetts guides, for a slide presentation of great places to get outdoors with family and friends, just around the corner from where you live! Each book in the series covers walks in a number of contiguous towns in south central and southeastern Massachusetts, and a few neighboring Rhode Island towns as well. Parent, grandparent, and kid-friendly destinations are covered. Some are handicapped accessible and many are handicapped friendly. All dog-friendly trails are noted.

Sat., Nov. 16, 1:30 rain or shine. Come join us at Bellingham’s High Street fields for a High Street nature walk, one of many of Bellingham’s 300th anniversary events held in 2019. Head to the back of the fields to meet at the trail kiosk for an easy, half mile down and half mile back walk to the banks of the Hidden Charles River. We start from High Street, where early Bellingham settlers first met to worship at a First Baptist Church member’s home, then follow the trail to the banks of the Charles River, to see old dam remnants in the river, along with an old stone house foundation within sight of the river. Appropriate for all ages, but the trail is not ADA accessible.
Walk is led by Marjorie Turner Hollman, author of several books in the Easy Walks in Massachusetts book series. Group walk leaves promptly at 1:30 pm. To catch up, follow the red arrows from the kiosk to the river.
This program is part of a “Go Local: Building Communities and Collections” grant the library was awarded. This is an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
