[10/17] Walden Pond Day Trip

October 6th, 2015 | Posted by buoutingclub in Trips

Hey BUOCers!


Let’s hang out at Walden Pond! This beautiful pond & wildlife refuge is only about a 30¬†minute drive from Boston. It’s a great opportunity to¬†hang out with your friends, meet new friends, and be inspired by Thoreau’s favorite nature spot! We’ll go for a little walk around the pond and then hang out on the beach. There will be two transportation options for this trip: a car ride and a bike ride!

Signups: Live Thursday October 8th at 2pm HERE
