To this end we have put together a panel of experts in the health, business, energy, and development fields to inform and guide our way. Our goal is to influence local decision makers and the citizenry they represent to develop sustainable actions that will make our communities strong in the face of the effects of climate change, both incremental and sudden.
Founded in 1969, Winchester Trails, is a small organization of volunteers who lead Winchester elementary students on nature walks in the numerous Winchester conservation areas throughout the town. We are affiliated with the Winchester Public Schools. Our group includes outdoor enthusiasts, educators, scientists and nature lovers interested in sharing our passion and knowledge of nature with children - the next stewards of our lands.
Did you know you can purchase guide books to help you explore Winchester's woodlands? Well you can and they are available at Book Ends in Winchester Center.
The Guide to the Winchester Woodlands provides a map and description of the history and natural features of each of the woodlands open to the public. The Long Pond Nature Trail book details the science and natural beauty at all of the stations along this walk.
