binoculars Gore Place.jpgThere is hardly a better time of the year than right now to get outside for a walk in the woods, and Gore Place in Waltham has two unique ways to enjoy all the splendors of fall. First is their "Autumn Talk A Walk Backpack" activity. Kids ages 3-8 can explore the grounds, visit the farm to say hello to chickens, goats, sheep, pigs and llama, and identify autumn leaves with binoculars, magnifying glass and seasonal activities that come in the rented backpack. For kids who want to shake it up a little bit during National Archaeology Month, children ages 6 and up with an accompanying adult may rent a backpack with archaeology tools and activities designed to help them understand how archaeological research of an historic site is done while they explore the 45-acre estate. Through Oct. 31. Mon. - Fri., 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Sat., 12 - 3 p.m. $5 per backpack rental. No reservations necessary. Gore Place Mansion, 52 Gore St., Waltham. www.goreplace.org
