Make a WISE Gift
Walking in nature is beneficial for many reasons. It can improve physical health by reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and strengthening the immune system. It can enhance mental well-being by boosting mood, creativity, and memory. Third, it can foster your social connections by providing opportunities to interact with others who share your interests and values. Walking in nature can also help you appreciate the beauty and diversity of the natural world. Explore some of Worcester’s beautiful trails with longtime Mass Audubon environmental advocates and educators Martha Gach and Deb Cary. As we walk, learn the history and special features of each area. Expect flat to moderate inclines and typical unimproved trail surfaces with occasional roots and rocks.
