to see how you can get involved in the

preservation of your local environment.

Here are a few ideas on staying safe on walks and hikes into Nature.

1.  Wear long pants tucked into socks.

2.  Wear sturdy hiking shoes that protect

     ankles and that are comfortable.

3.  Use insect protection and after a hike take a

     warm shower and comb hair for ticks.

     We wash our hiking clothes in case of ticks.

4.  Look but don't touch.......some plants

     are poisonous.

5.  Wear sun protection like sunblock and a

     hat....long sleeves protect arms.  Don't

     forget to protect the back of your neck from


6.  Wear a mask and respect other peoples

     space by staying 6 feet apart.  Masks can

     also protect you from pollen.

7.  Be observant and watch your step to avoid

     accidents and to enjoy the sights and sounds

     of Nature.

8.  Avoid walking thru tall grass.  Stick to the

     trail.  Step lightly on the land.

9.  Have fun learning more about Nature and

     then become active in preserving and

     protecting our environment.

"Holbrook's GCC Walk"

On June 4, 2022 Patricia Greely, partnering with GCC, led a walk in the Holbrook Town Forest.  The Town Forest is a precious refuge for the residents and they have worked hard fighting to save and preserve it. In this video story, we want to share with you the struggle Holbrook residents have gone through and even in the face of adversity they didn't  give up on their preservation goals. These residents want to share with you what we have in our own backyards stressing how important it is to work together so these wonderful woodlands will be here for future generations.
