  Various Locations: Walktober
Description:
Welcome to the 28th Annual Walktober in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. After 28 years, Walktober is still the best way to celebrate all the beauty, historic treasures and working farms of the 35 towns of eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts. With more than 200 unique experiences, you’ll get a chance to see some of the most beautiful landscapes in New England, meet some of the heroes and scoundrels who shaped our nation, and see first-hand what it means to farm and eat local. All of this is made possible by the most passionate volunteers you will ever meet. Every Walktober leader will share with you what they love about The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. Whether you call The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor home, or you are visiting for the first time or the 10th time, you’ll come away with a new appreciation for why this place is so special. If you pair this brochure with one of The Last Green Valley’s Explore! Guides, you’ll also find many places to shop local, catch a fabulous meal or relax with a drink after your Walktober adventures. Keep them both for ideas of year-round things to do. And, visit our website, thelastgreenvalley.org, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter for information about our monthly programs, including Acorn Adventures for kids and Ranger programs. Enjoy Walktober and help us care for, enjoy and pass on The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.
