What is WALK-TOBER, you ask?
WALK-TOBER is an exciting, three part series, spanning the month of October, of family-friendly guided hikes with knowledgeable speakers in a variety of fields. Have you ever wanted to know just a little bit more about our town's green spaces, but don't like to walk alone? Are you curious about Sandown's rich history, but never seem to make it to the Depot? Maybe biology is your thing, but you aren't sure where to find salamanders? Now is your chance!
These events are FREE, open to all and are family-friendly, but we would like to remind you that it will require the ability to walk uneven terrain, so wear your comfy shoes! Waters and a small snack will be provided, but feel free to bring your own snacks for the hike. This event is rain or shine.
