Join Concord historian Jayne Gordon for a two mile walk through landscapes that Henry Thoreau encountered and recorded in his excursions through the East Quarter of Concord. The walk will begin at The Wayside and incorporate both farming fields and Gowing’s Swamp. We will discuss Thoreau’s observations over light refreshments on The Wayside piazza when we return.  Bring water and wear comfortable walking shoes!
