National Thrive Outside Day

October 9, 10:00 AM


To celebrate National Thrive Outside Day, the Museum will encourage families and friends to visit the trails. A 10 a.m. program will include providing Leaf Kits for children to use as they explore the forested Good Will-Hinckley Trails.

The National Thrive Outside program is part of a nationwide group of networks and collaborations working to make the outdoors accessible and equitable for all people. Trail brochures with maps are available in a box at the trail head behind the museum. These also tell the stories of the historic monuments and entrances along the trails.

G. W. Hinckley, the founder of Good Will would agree with Thrive Outside Day. He developed the trails, summer camping and hiking trips for the children at Good Will.

All outdoor programs are dependent on the weather. Programs will be canceled, if it is rainy.
