Trail Maintenance with Bob
Oct 15 @ 9:00 am – 12:30 pm

Get some fresh air and exercise… and give back to an amazing park that serves tens of thousands of visitors each year.  You will be helping to care for the trails by improving erosion structures, raking and digging out the ditches next to trails or cutting brush.  Your work will keep the trails from eroding and make sure people can explore the park.  Please wear sturdy shoes (no sandals) and long pants. If you have a favorite pair of gardening gloves, please bring them.  Please bring at least a liter of water as well.  We will provide all the tools and training you’ll need.  No experience necessary.  Thanks to Bob Flagg for leading this event.

You’re Invited to the Blue Hills Bash!

Mix and Mingle for the Blue Hills
Annual Celebration 2022
In-person or LIVE on Zoom… You’ll support the Blue Hills Reservation!

If you want to have a great time — and help care for the Blue Hills — you’ll want to join us on October 20!

Together, we’ll celebrate the past year of protecting and preserving the Blue Hills… and raise funds to continue caring for the park!

You can choose to celebrate in person or online. Either way, you’re sure to be inspired by the special guest speaker Claire O’Neill, from Earthwise Aware.

In-person attendees will also enjoy delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres, games, and the opportunity to meet people like you who love the Blue Hills.

You’ll also have the chance to bid on awesome items that are part of the online auction.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to help protect the forest and care for the trails… and have a great time!

Blue Hills Fall Foliage and Sunset Hike @ Blue Hills Ski Area
Nov 5 @ 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm

What could be more spectacular than fall foliage? Viewing this foliage from the top of Great Blue as the sun sets! Enjoy the season’s finest colors from the summit of the region’s highest hill.

On Saturday, November 5th from 3:30 – 6:30 pm, the Friends of the Blue Hills and Blue Hill Ski will be sponsoring a free self-guided hike to the top of Great Blue. Complimentary cider and apples will be served at the top of the mountain, and hikers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner to enjoy at the summit. Sunset will be at 5:30pm. This is a self-guided hike, so feel free to arrive anytime. (You’ll just want to give yourself time to hike to the top to see the sunset!)

This is the only opportunity to hike down Great Blue at night. After sunset, the ski area lights will be on to guide the way.

Please wear sturdy shoes, bring water and it would be a good idea to bring a flashlight as well. Free parking is available at Blue Hills Ski Area, 4001 Washington Street, Canton.

All participants will check out at the end of the hike at the Blue Hill Ski Area lodge.  We require your phone number so we can call you if you do not check out, just to make sure you returned safely.

Email us with your questions: info@FriendsoftheBlueHills.org.

Many thanks to the generous event sponsor:  Orchard Cove.
