Summer Solstice Program at Spot Pond with Boot Boutwell, Sponsored by The Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation.
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
6:30pm – 8:30 pm
4 Woodland Road, Stoneham, MA
Join Boot Boutwell and the Friends of the Fells in celebrating the summer solstice, the day when the midday sun reaches it’s highest point in the sky. The summer
solstice, which occurs this year at 7:09 pm EDT on June 20th, marks the longest day (and shortest night) of the year. We will celebrate the season with solstice history and lore, poetry, songs, a solstice story and a short ceremony
to welcome in the solstice. We will also take a walk in the woods to enjoy the beauty of nature on the first day of summer and, weather permitting, to watch
the sun set. The program will end with refreshments. NOTE: Pre-registration required. Call Boot Boutwell: 781-729-4712. Enrollment is limited; register early.
