Escape the pre-holiday chaos and fill your lungs with fresh, crisp air as we explore Paradise Ravine’s huge hemlock trees that lift high into the sky, and offer suitable habitat for porcupines, owls, and bobcats. With leaves down, we should be able to find old stone walls an a number of beaver dams and their lodges, picturing them warm in their above ground platforms within the lodge. Make a day of it! You may want to head to the Historical Shirley Meeting house afterwards for the Annual Christmas Caroling program!
Please come prepared for the weather – dress in layers, wear warm hats, gloves/mittens and warm boot (snowshoes welcome, if we have snow!). Bring water and a light snack. This program will be offered with light rain, but cancelled if the weather is severe.
