She figured that all of them enjoy the Blue Hills, so why not Sponsor a Trail in their name?  For $35 a trail, Mary now has the perfect holiday present for two of her favorite companions.

Sponsoring a trail isn’t just for four-legged friends.  It’s a great gift for anyone who loves the Blue Hills!

Thanks to support from the Milton Junior Woman’s Club, over 300 people – youngsters and their caregivers – explored the Blue Hills together through bi-weekly Peek a Blue Hikes.

While we will be taking a break over the winter months, we’ll be back Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 at Houghton’s Pond.

In the meantime, hope to see you at this year’s Winter Fest, February 24th!
