Westborough – Celebrate the 16th anniversary of the first Charm Bracelet walk with the Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) Sunday, Oct. 16, from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Follow the route of the first hike and see how the area surrounding Sandra Pond has changed over time. Walk from Minuteman Park around the north side of Sandra Pond to the Bowman parking lot and onward to the WCLT Hidden Meadow property. Then loop back on the Tree Farm trail, cross the bridge over Piccadilly Brook and return on newly created trails. The hike will explore changes to the Bowman Conservation Area, both the work done by the town and the efforts of WCLT, including a large number of Eagle Scout projects. The hike will be approximately 3.25 miles long. The terrain will be the rolling hills of Bowman and Bowman West, so there are some climbs including one with steps. The pace will be moderate (roughly two miles an hour) with a number of stops to describe what was done and why the work was needed. Those interested should meet at Minuteman Park on Upton Road. The walk will be led by Derek Saari and Don Burn.
