Kids ages 8-12 are invited to join the Hopkinton Junior Explorers, and explore the town's many trails with experienced outdoor educator and naturalist Linden Rayton. Kids will need to be dropped off and picked up at each location for each outing. Experiences are not limited to but will definitely include: finding salamanders, frogs and mushrooms; using compasses; building informal outdoor shelters; and having great outdoor time.
We will social distance. Participants should wear long pants, weather-appropriate clothing and bring a mask.
