ACT’s Mid-Week Morning Walk in Franconia

FRANCONIA – Does a wander in the woods and lunch al fresco along the Gale River sound tempting?  If so, join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) for its second mid-week summer walk (and optional picnic) on Wednesday, August 28 at 10 a.m. at the Lawrence Forest in Franconia.

The walk will be a loop through the lovely woods of the Lawrence Forest, approximately 2 miles long with some mild elevation gains and losses.  We’ll walk at a slow to moderate pace to take in the flora and fauna that cross our path as we the follow a lovely stretch of Meadow Brook and even catch a few mountain views!

After the walk, anyone interested in a little socializing will head to a beautiful spot along the Gale River for an optional picnic lunch from about 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  Kids are encouraged to come on the walk and picnic but please leave your pups at home for this one.

Registration is required for this walk and is capped at 15 participants for your safety and enjoyment. Please be sure to register ASAP at  Registration closes at noon on Tuesday, August 27.  The walk is free but donations are welcome and gladly accepted.

The Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust inspires and leads private, voluntary action to conserve the land the North Country loves.  Learn more and become a member at or by calling (603) 823-7777.
