The Neponset River, flowing through Milton and Dorchester, hosts a wide and varied habitat before it empties into the Boston Harbor. On Saturday, February 9 at 1:00 p.m., you are invited to join Boston Natural Areas Network and a DCR Park Ranger to take an afternoon scenic stroll along the Neponset Greenway trail to explore the Lower Mills along with the sweet history of the Baker Chocolate Factory site. In compensation for spending a winter afternoon with us at Boston Natural Areas Network, we will warm you up after our walk with hot cocoa. This event is for ages 10 and up.
Participants will meet at the public parking lot at Milton Landing, near 25 Wharf Street. This program is free and open to the public, and cancels only in extreme weather.
