DCR Adult Walking Club *Cancelled* @ Houghton's Pond main parking lot
Apr 4 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Out of an abundance of caution due to the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the Southeastern Massachusetts Adult Walking Club walks on Saturday, March 14, 2020, through Saturday, April 11, 2020, at various state parks have been cancelled.

On March 10, the Baker-Polito Administration announced new guidance for Executive Branch employees in order to prevent and mitigate the spread of the disease, including canceling or virtually holding conferences, seminars, and other discretionary gatherings hosted by Executive Branch agencies involving external parties.

Thank you for your cooperation and support as the Commonwealth works to address this public health issue.

Sincerely,

Maggi Brown

DCR Visitor Services Supervisor
