Join Jeremy Wilson and Brett Amy Thelen for a relaxed ramble along one of the SuperSanctuary’s most scenic country roads. We’ll start at the picturesque Nelson Town Common, then make our way past the historic village cemetery to Lead Mine Road and a stone outcropping with a spectacular view of Silver Lake and Grand Monadnock. Along the way, we’ll search for signs of wildlife and share some of the remarkable conservation history of the protected lands surrounding Lead Mine Road, Center Pond, and Silver Lake, which total hundreds of acres in all.

Our out-and-back route will cover a total of 3.2 miles along dirt roads and a short stretch through a mowed meadow path, with approximately 350 feet of elevation gain. Bring water and a snack to enjoy from the vista, and come prepared for sun and biting insects.

Meet at 9 a.m. at the Nelson Town Common. Back by noon. Space is limited, and registration is required.
