Lake Chauncy

*** CANCELLED *** Geology Walk: The Making of Westborough

Cancelled due to predicted extreme heat.

Learn about Westborough’s landscape and how it was shaped by glaciers. The major glacial periods covered the land in a mile-thick ice sheet eight different times over the last million years!

During this 2.5-mile round-trip hike, leader Andy Koenigsberg will take the group along the west and south sides of Lake Chauncy, and north to visit a glacially deposited former sand and gravel quarry.

Come away with an understanding of how New England’s rocky, hilly, pond-filled landscape came to exist as we see it today.

Directions: Take Dr. Solomon Carter Fuller Way [formerly Hospital Road] off Lyman Street in Westborough. Go straight up the hill, past the soccer fields on your left. Then take the very last left turn before the parking lot for the condo building. Where that road meets the lakeshore, park and meet near the yellow gate.

No reservation needed. Check for weather cancellations before setting out.

Owls of New England (Speaker: Peter Christoph) And WCLT Annual Meeting

[In-person indoor event; masks will be required for everyone over the age of 2.]

In this captivating presentation, wildlife photographer Peter Christoph delivers stunning photographs of his favorite owls combined with stories that entertain, educate and inspire.

You’ll learn the secrets Peter uses to find and photograph these same owls in the wild in their natural habitat!

Eight common species of owls in New England include: Great Horned, Barred, and Eastern Screech – all year-round residents and fairly easy to spot. Long-eared, Short-eared, and Snowy are winter migrants and breed far north of us. Northern Saw-whet Owls do breed in New England but are quite small and rarely seen. Barn Owls have bred in New England but are the toughest of all to find.

He’ll wrap up this exceptional wildlife program with beautiful images of a vagrant migrant- a rare visitor called the Great Gray Owl.

Reception and Annual Meeting to follow.

Location St. Lukes Parish Center, 1 Ruggles St., Westborough, MA.
