We'll be taking the rest of the week off from the Natural Capital to spend time with family. Have a great holiday!
For those of you who won't be cooking all morning, the Sierra Club and the Appalachian Mountain Club have a joint hike on Thanksgiving morning: 5 miles in Huntley Meadows, promised to be done by noon. Trip leaders may be able to help you find a ride. Free.
After the fact, there are a couple of long hikes scheduled aimed to work off your big meal over the weekend:
On Saturday, the Capital Hiking Club will go 9 miles on the Potomac Heritage Trail and C&O from Key Bridge to Chain Bridge and back. $3.
And on Sunday, the Center Hiking Club will cover 10 miles in the southernmost part of Rock Creek Park, leaving from Rosslyn Metro. $2 for non-members.
For kids: T is for Turkey at Brookside Nature Center Saturday morning. " Learn all about turkeys through a story and hike." Ages 2-6; $3.
As always, there are many more hikes and other activities on our calendar.
