Arnold Promise Witch Hazel Shrub

Twenty walkers welcomed Spring with an easy stroll along the Charles River. A juvenile bald eagle soared high above and a swan swam quietly by as we gathered at the Woerd Ave boat launch. Walking through the woods we saw witch hazel and a turtle sunning itself on a log across the way. We checked out informational signs and maps along the Waltham Watch Factory, then took the Riverwalk to Moody Street, where we saw a rare pink footed goose with mallards and Canada geese. We returned via the street sidewalk so we could see the small museum at the front of the Watch Factory, free and open to the public during business hours.
