Walk in the Woods

The Vineyard Conservation Society’s winter walks program will continue this Sunday, Feb. 8, starting at 1 p.m. at the Frances Newhall Woods Preserve. Guided walks on this private property have been held annually since 1991 when it was permanently protected through a gift of a conservation restriction to The Nature Conservancy.

The walk will last approximately two hours, and participants should dress appropriately. From West Tisbury, proceed up North Road about one mile, and look for VCS signs on the left.

This season’s walks program, conducted in partnership with the Massachusetts Environmental Trust, explores the theme of Protecting Our Water through exploration of the Island’s watersheds, ponds, streams, and drinking water supplies.
