Walktober hits its stride this weekend with more than 60 adventures throughout The Last Green Valley. And it’s all happening as the national heritage corridor begins to hit its peak for fall foliage. The Walktober events will be engaging and fun and the scenery spectacular.
Walktober is in its 27th year and is a program of The Last Green Valley, Inc., the non-profit charged with promoting and advocating for the national heritage corridor’s unique resources.
“This is why people come from all over the world to New England in the fall,” said Lois Bruinooge, Executive Director of TLGV. “The spectacular foliage we experience year after year is a rarity in many places and Walktober helps people take full advantage of our natural resources. Walktober is the best way to get out in The Last Green Valley and explore all its corners with experienced and passionate volunteers and take in fall at its best.”
