NSRWA Walking Club – Webster’s Wilderness in Marshfield
Saturday, December 10
10:00am – 11:30pm
Join Walking Club Guest Host Roger Whidden for a walk through Webster’s Wilderness in Marshfield. Roger is a resident of Marshfield, where he owns and operates the Whidden School of Fitness, which focuses on martial arts. He is also member of the Marshfield Recreation Trails Committee, a nature enthusiast, and an Appalachian Trail Guide.
Roger has chosen Webster’s Wilderness in Marshfield as the location for this month’s walk. Marshfield Conservation owns the 130-acre Webster’s Wilderness Property, which is rich in wildlife and history. It is part of the 1,200 acres that once belonged to US Senator and two-time Secretary of State Daniel Webster. A trail network leads through lowland forest and wetlands. The property features pond views, vernal pools, and a portion of the historic Pilgrim Trail, as well as Cherry Hill, the place where Webster gave his last public speech. Roger has offered to do a short additional walk of the Webster estate grounds after the guided walk, for those interested. Parking is in the lot behind the new Senior Center, by the trail kiosk. 226 Webster Street, Marshfield, MA.
This event is FREE, however, registration is required.
