The Last Green Valley (TLGV) is looking forward to sharing a fun-filled month and then some during its 24rd Annual Walktober. Walktober features 155 super activities led by our members and volunteers including 107 FREE walks/hikes, 5 paddles and 3 bike rides (from September 27th through November 1st) as well as 40 events (throughout October and continuing into November) that highlight the special cultural, historic or natural resources throughout the 35-town bi-state National Heritage Corridor. These activities are an exceptional way to discover hidden treasures in The Last Green Valley – a new hiking or paddling area, amusing historical facts, colorful vistas, busy beavers, rivers and rails, gardens and graveyards, architecture, and lots more. Once you have been introduced to these delights, you won’t be able to resist returning over and over again!
Many of the 35 towns in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor will host at least one event, and Norwich has an amazing 39 walks and 5 events! You can zone in on fun at a Zombie Walk with cast members from the thriller Remains, filmed in Norwich (#12), Hike Mount Misery in Pachaug State Park & Forest with Chief Ranger Bill (#21), or paddle the French River (#15) in Oxford, MA. Gravestones and their carvers tell many colorful stories of the past, and there are many opportunities to hear the bones rattling ~ or is that just the leaves falling? (#61, #64, #69, #76, #102, #104).

The Last Green Valley is a National Heritage Corridor – the last stretch of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington, D.C. A dynamic nonprofit organization, TLGV works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. We help you to care for it, enjoy, and pass it on!
