This Month’s Hike

New Dawn Earth Center

Saturday, October 25, 2014


75 Wrentham Road, Cumberland

The New Dawn Earth Center is a part of Mercy Ecology, an organization that focuses on connecting people with nature and healing the Earth through school and community outreach, farming, gardening, and more. New Dawn offers programs for all ages and the center includes an educational room with nature themed puppets, toys, and other educational materials. The grounds include hiking trails and a New Dawn staff member will join us to point out some of these wonderful features.

This hike is about 0.5 mile and easy for children. It is not stroller-friendly, but fairly level. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear long pants as well as hiking boots or sturdy sneakers. We will meet at 11:15am sharp in front of the center and begin our hike by 11:30am. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch and explore the center after we hike.
