The Vineyard Conservation Society (VCS) will begin its program of guided winter walks this Sunday, Nov. 11, with an interpretative hike around the agricultural land and outwash plain at Katama Farm. The walk takes place from 1 to 3 p.m.

This year’s winter walks embrace the theme of historic land usage crossroads and feature properties where possible crises were averted with the help of VCS.

At Katama Farm, the community united to prevent development that could have resulted in hundreds of building lots.

Walk participants should gather at the Farm Institute parking lot near the barn. Bob Woodruff, who helped facilitate the Katama conservation outcome more than 30 years ago, will co-lead the walk.

For more information, call VCS at 508-693-9588.
