New! LEARN ABOUT GLACIAL FEATURES & ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL WALK THROUGH HOP BROOK BASIN

Instructed by Bruce Porter

Co-Sponsored by Sudbury Conservation Commission and 

Sudbury Valley Trustees


Join glaciologist/geophysicist Bruce Porter for a socially distanced walk through the Hop Brook Basin. While wearing a face mask, explore the many features formed by the glacier that blanketed New England 10,000 yrs. ago. Kettles pit the plane and kame terraces rise abruptly to create beautiful vistas of the wetlands below. Be able to identify eskers, erratics, kames, and more on your next hike. Flat with one steep 50 foot section. Bring water. Due to social distancing, enrollment is limited to six participants and face masks must be worn.  Severe weather postpones to the rain date of 9/27. No dogs please. Bruce Porter has been leading walks on glacial features for over 10 years He was invited by Boston College’s Weston Geophysical Observatory to co-lead an in depth study of glaciation in eastern MA. He is a member of the Sudbury Conservation Commission. He actively promotes conservation through his work in the Hop Brook Protection Association, Protect Sudbury, and Sustainable Sudbury.
