In-Person LOCAL Greater Boston & Southeastern, MA “Open” Outdoor Enthusiasts Club for Adults, 9/11/21, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET

September 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm, Free

DESCRIPTION: The AANE Outdoor Enthusiasts Club is a new group, created to bring together adults in the Greater Boston and Southeastern, MA areas, who share a love of the outdoors. Facilitated by Katie McClean, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, the group will organize fun and interesting outdoor activities.

Join the Outdoor Enthusiasts Club if you are an adult on the autism spectrum looking for opportunities to socialize and participate in fun outdoor adventures. For more information, and to sign up, check out the Club on MeetUp

Join the club on SATURDAY, September 11th at 10:00am for a morning walk along the Esplanade. The Esplanade is a lovely, paved walkway along the Charles River so we encourage everyone to wear sneakers and sunglasses!

The Esplanade is located in Boston, so parking can be tricky. We recommend taking the T there, though we are going early enough that you may be able to find street parking along Charles Street.

TIME: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

WHERE: Charles River Esplanade

HOST:  Katie McLean, LICSW
