Bring your family and friends for a pre-Thanksgiving guided walk through the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary to discover what is happening in the world of nature as plants and animals prepare for winter. Sanctuary naturalists will lead small groups as they venture out to the "Big Woods" on Averill's Island. You'll stop along the way to hear stories of the original settlers and learn about the cultural history of the sanctuary. You'll look for animal signs as you hike through the woodlands and marshes, taking in the beauty of the muted colors of late autumn. Each hike will last about two hours, so dress warmly and wear comfortable footwear. You can warm up by the woodstove in the barn upon your return. Hot drinks and homemade soup and desserts will be available for purchase beginning at 11:30 a.m., so feel free to get there early to enjoy a bite to eat before you go out on your hike. Sun., Nov. 17, noon - 1:30 p.m., with staggered start times every 15 minutes. Ages 5 and up. Members: adults, $7; children, $6. Non-members: adults, $8; children, $7. Rain or shine. Registration required. Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, 87 Perkins Row, Topsfield.
