This meeting is an in-person* meeting. We’re heading back to the beach on SATURDAY, September 10th! Instead of our usual hiking/walking agenda, we will be planning a morning of sunshine & relaxation at Carson Beach in South Boston.

We will be setting up in the sand near the Edward J. McCormack Bath House (GPS: 165 HarborWalk, Boston 02125). There are parking lots on both sides of the bath house and along Old Colony Ave. Additionally, the bath house is a 5 minute walk from the JFK/UMass stop on the red line & commuter rail.

RE: COVID, AANE requires its attendees to be fully vaccinated and masks will NOT be required throughout the event since we will be outside and have the ability to distance. However, you are welcome to wear a mask at any time.
