SEE THE EFFECTS OF WILDFIRES: TOUR THE PARK WITH FIRE ECOLOGISTS
Saturday, July 30 8:30 am – 10:30 am
Sign up today
If you walk in the eastern part of the Blue Hills, you will see evidence of wildfires that burned nearly 80 acres of forest and ridgetop barrens this spring. How did these fires affect the forest, wildlife, and plants of the area? Perhaps not the way you might think! Join Caren Caljouw and Alex Entrup from the Massachusetts Division Fisheries and Wildlife for a guided tour to reveal natural secrets of the Blue Hills, its interesting fire and land use history, and the many specialized plants and animals found here. You’ll learn about this unique fire influenced ecosystem in the Blue Hills and the animals and plants that depend on it. Caren and Alex will also describe efforts to improve wildlife habitat throughout Massachusetts through the careful use of prescribed fire.
To attend any of these events, sign up here!
Past Events to Celebrate Membership Month
MORNING YOGA with Allison Masley
Sunday, July 10, 9 am – 10 am
At this special event for our members, participants enjoyed the sights and sounds of nature as the great outdoors transformed into your yoga studio. Attendees were encouraged to allow this Sunday morning yoga practice to act as a reset button for relaxation and stretch out those hiking muscles. In this mindful vinyasa-style yoga class, the instructor guided everyone so they could focus on your breath and move from one posture to the next with intention. All experience levels were welcome as postures will be taught as well as enhanced and refined.
Instructor: Alli Masley. In 2018, Alli began her search for a deeper yoga practice as a yoga instructor. Alli has completed her 200-hour Teacher Training, 500-hour Teacher Training, as well as further certifications in Yin Yoga & Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga. For students and teachers alike, Alli’s goal is to create an adventure of personal growth through yoga that mirrors her own journey for a more balanced life.
