Have you been sticking with your New Year's resolution to get more exercise? It was impossible to ignore the outdoors last weekend when we saw temperatures reaching 70 degrees on the SouthCoast. I think I walked seven miles between Saturday and Sunday. In case you didn't make it outside last weekend or would just like to soak up some more time outdoors, join Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust (DNRT) for a challenging hike this upcoming Monday.

The Long Dam Walk will take place on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Monday, January 20, Mike Labossiere and a group of DNRT staff and volunteers will lead a six and a half-mile walk through several properties, including DNRT's Ridge Hill Reserve, the Southeastern MA Bioreserve, and Copicut Woods. Attendees will also be able to walk across the Copicut Reservoir Dam, which is not normally open to the public. Prepare for uneven terrain; wet, rocky, and rooted areas; as well as inclines. This walk takes approximately three and a half or four hours.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Sign up HERE or call Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust at (508) 991-2289. The meeting location and details will be emailed to registrants before the walk. Sorry, dogs are not allowed on this hike.

Where: Southeastern MA Bioreserve, Dartmouth, MA
When: Monday, January 20, from 10 am to 1 pm
Price: Free for DNRT Members, $5 Non-Members
