During beautiful summer days, long hours at your desk can be brutal. If you’re in the Longwood Medical Area, take a break from inside and get out to enjoy your surroundings. The Harvard School of Public Health and the Eco-Opportunity Team are is leading summer City Safaris exploring outdoor green spaces around the campus.
Although we work in an urban environment, green spaces and green projects abound. The Safaris venture to gardens, parks, and riverways. These lunchtime walks are not only a great excuse to leave your desk and generate some endorphins, but a chance to discover local green projects happening around you. If you’ve been thinking of joining a green team, the walks are also an opportunity to test out participating. The remaining summer walks are listed below. Stay tuned for fall and winter dates.
For each safari, meet outside the HSPH Kresge Building entrance at 12:30 pm. All safaris will return by 1:30 pm.
