Celebrate Groundhog Day with Great Works!
Saturday, Feb. 2, 9 am - noon
Snowshoe Orris Falls Conservation Area
Update: How about a hike instead? Not much snow but there could be icy spots so grippers on your boots and/or a hiking pole could be helpful.
The Tatnic region of Wells, South Berwick and Ogunquit has a unique geology and natural history resulting in unusual features such as Baker's Oven that have been the subject of much folklore. Hike leader Tin Smith will take the group to the Big Bump, Orris Falls, and, if the marsh is frozen, to Baker's Oven. If time permits, the group will also visit a 5th 'Wonder of Tatnic', Balancing Rock. Snowshoes are suggested but not required.
RSVP as numbers are limited. It's always wise to confirm date, location and footgear recommendations. Free to members, suggested donation of $5 ($10/family) for non-members.
