Walk to Discover Historic New England: Thoreau's Cape Cod

book jacketJoin us as we celebrate Henry David Thoreau's 200th birthday this year with a special presentation on Tuesday, August 1, about his book Cape Cod followed by a guided walk on August 5 along some of Quincy's own magnificent coastline.

Join Peter Fifield and Sally Owen for a stroll around Squaw Rock, using quotes from Thoreau's work, to imagine how he might have experienced it (Rain date: Sunday, August 6 at 6:30 p.m.). Share your thoughts, knowledge and questions about Thoreau.   Bring bug spray and wear long pants and socks that can cover pants bottoms (to minimize tick exposure).  Meet in the Nickerson Post parking lot at the end of Dorchester Street in Squantum, at Squaw Rock Park. For more information and rain date rescheduling, please call 617/472-0799.
