Walktober Deadline Approaching Soon!
TLGV is gearing up for its 26th fun-filled year of Walktober. Don’t miss the May 1st, 2016 deadline to submit your Walktober activity for inclusion in the program this fall! Click here for the Walktober registration form.
Last year, volunteer leaders offered more than 200 guided walks, strolls, hikes, bike rides, paddles, tastes, sips, and events during the region’s most invigorating time of year, and 50,000 explorers took part in the delight that was spread throughout 35 towns in the National Heritage Corridor! Walktober boosts economic activity not only during the fall, but all year long as visitors return to their old and new-found favorite spots.
Inspire others by hosting or leading a Walktober activity. TLGV members, including nonprofit and business partners, are welcome to showcase their specialties. Need an idea? Ranger Marcy is happy to help! Call 860-774-3300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and learn how you can connect and inspire residents and visitors alike to all The Last Green Valley has to offer.
Norwich has quickly become a Walktober model as city agencies and nonprofits work together to coordinate activities that will attract visitors to their city’s special features and stories. Putnam and Windham adopted this model last year and offered many coordinated choices; both towns are looking to equal or better their Walktober exposure this year. Organizers from Southbridge are also stepping up to host a great variety of activities that will entice residents and visitors alike to explore their community. Make sure your town or nonprofit takes advantage of Walktober, too!
The question is “Do You Walktober?” The answer should be “YES!”
