LWCF campaign kickoff

Saturday, April 21, 2018 12:00 AM

Join AMC Boston's Young Members and Conservation Committees for an (almost) Earth Day kickoff of our Land and Water Conservation Fund campaign! The LWCF is a hugely important program that has helped to create many of the outdoor recreation spaces AMC members enjoy. Without action from Congress, it will expire on September 30, 2018, so we are working to encourage our legislators to take action and preserve our outdoor spaces. Join us to learn more about the LWCF, send a postcard to your legislator, and enjoy some pizza with other AMC Boston members!

Middlesex Fells

Sunday, April 22, 2018 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Celebrate the arrival of reliable (?) good weather with Mike and Marker the beagle with a short but strenuous hike along the Skyline Trail in the Middlesex Fells Reservation. We will meet at the Sheepfold parking area, at the far western edge of the upper lot (by the sign posts) and proceed down the Skyline trail where short rocky scrambles lead to excellent views of Boston and the surrounding area, culminating at Wright's Tower at the park's southern edge. We will loop around and follow the reservoir back to the parking area.
