Wild Wednesdays

We're holding in-person hikes and interpretive programs focusing on Boston’s Urban Wilds.

Join us for a walk in the woods on Wednesdays throughout the summer. Hikes will explore different wilderness areas of Boston. They will last about one hour and will travel one to two miles through the woods.

Hikes will be led by a Boston Park Ranger or Boston Park employee and will include some interpretive programming. Pre-registration is required and space is limited.
