Wellfleet Conservation Trust (WCT) will offer its 12th Annual Guided Walk on Saturday, September 15th, 2018 beginning at 9AM. The walk, which is open to the public and free of charge, will be along most of the coastline of Indian Neck.
The WCT Annual Guided Walk is a tradition that began in 2007 for the public to experience the beauty of Wellfleet's open space and conservation lands while being guided by naturalists and other local experts who share their knowledge of the history, geology, and ecology of the areas being explored. This year's guided walk is dedicated to Don Palladino, long time WCT trustee who passed away this spring. Don was the inspiration for our guided walks and organized the first six.
Topics will include the history of the breakwater and pier, Native American settlements, a midden, shellfishing, revetments, a modernist house, terrapin nests, and fabulous vistas.
The walk will begin at 9AM on Saturday, September 15th at the Indian Neck breakwater parking lot. Parking may be limited so carpooling is recommended. The walk is about 3.5 miles in length. Walkers will be offered the opportunity to leave the walk earlier. Estimated time of the walk is 3 hours. Much of the walk is mostly flat along hard packed beach with little shade. There will be one or two wet sections so appropriate footwear is recommended.
The walk is free of charge, all are welcome to participate, and no reservation is necessary. If it is necessary to postpone due to inclement weather, the walk will take place on Sunday, Sept 16 at 9:00 am. If postponed, it will be posted on the WCT website and facebook page no later than 7:00 AM on the 15th.
