Hike Attleboro Kickoff Event on October 22nd

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, October 22nd, at Murray Unitarian Universalist Church, 505 N Main Street, for the kick-off of a new initiative of the Attleboro Land Trust, the City of Attleboro and Mass Audubon.

Hike Attleboro is a program to link all the open spaces in Attleboro through a network of walking trails connecting city parks with rolling meadows and peaceful woodland paths.

Don Burn, founder of the highly successful “Charm Bracelet” trail system in Westborough Massachusetts will deliver the keynote. A featured speaker for MassTrails, Don will share his experience of building a trail network suited for all types of hikers that today extends 28 miles, connecting every neighborhood in Westborough.

He will share his insights on the significant community impact of urban walkable trails and the best ways to preserve them.

The evening will start with a Welcome Social from 7 - 7:30 pm.

The formal presentations will start at 7:30.
