Lost Farm Sanctuary Hike
Aug 23 @ 8:00 am
Lost Farm Sanctuary Hike

Duration
2 Hours

About
Sitting on 90 acres at the north end of Hummock Pond on its east side, like Gardner Farm immediately south, Lost Farm’s former vegetable fields have given way to shrubs and native pitch pines. While this transition continues with all stages visible on the property, there is also an extensive pitch pine forest with some of the tallest pines on Nantucket. Trails meander through this forest with one tracking the eastern shore of the north end of Hummock Pond. Nantucket has few forests in the mainland sense, but pitch pines at Lost Farm constitute one of the best examples of forested land on the island. Bird calls echo among the pines as the wind blowing over Hummock Pond creates a whispering effect rushing through the trees’ needles. White-tailed deer frequent this property. There are mute swans, various duck species, great blue herons and ospreys on and around the pond where snapping and painted turtles poke their heads up from.

The area is within Nantucket’s oldest outwash plain of sandplain grasslands and contains pitch pine forests and a cattail-choked inlet over which a small walkway passes. This is one of the shorter hikes Nantucket Walkabout leads and is close to Cisco Beach and Cisco Brewery.
What to Bring
Please wear whatever walking footwear works for you, and we strongly recommend bringing the following items on our hike: bug spray, water, a snack, and sunblock lotion. You may also wish to bring a camera, binoculars and compass to see more, plus a lightweight waterproof jacket if it looks like rain!

Smooth Hummocks
Aug 23 @ 2:00 pm
Smooth Hummocks

About
Graded relatively flat by glacial meltwater running out over the coastal plain to the ocean 75 miles away when the landmass that would become Nantucket was nothing more than a wide, low ridge of sand, gravel and glacial erratics (boulders), Smooth Hummocks is Nantucket’s version of the Midwest’s prairies complete with rare wildflowers and grasses that thrive in sandy, nutrient-poor soil.

These so-called sandplain grasslands number less than 2,000 acres on the planet today and are protected as nesting habitat for the short-eared owl, studied by botanists, entomologists, used by island students for their ecology coursework and burned by the Nantucket Islands Land Bank for plant research and invasive species control. Smooth Hummocks is a fascinating island ecosystem with many things to teach us.

This hike costs $40 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. Check the Hike Calendar to see when we are hiking the Smooth Hummocks trail and to book it. To arrange for a private hike on this route, call or email us for our rates and to discuss your hiking needs.

Grease by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs @ Bennett Hall
Aug 23 @ 7:00 pm
Grease by Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs @ Bennett Hall

It’s 1959, and Rydell High School’s senior class is in rare form. The too-cool-for-school “Burger Palace Boys” are stealing hubcaps and acting tough and their gum-snapping, chain-smoking “Pink Ladies” are looking hot in bobby socks and pedal pushers. The 1950s high school dream is about to explode in this rollicking musical that is both an homage to the idealism of the fifties and a satire of high schoolers’ age-old desire to be provocative and rebellious.

At the heart of the story is the romance between hot- rodding gangster Danny Zuko and the sweet new girl in town, Sandy Dumbrowski. They had a secret romance over the summer, but now back in the context of school, peer pressure and cliques make their love a bit more complicated. Can Danny maintain his cool dude status and still make demure Sandy his girl? The whole gang sings and dances around Danny and Sandy’s romance, through such hit songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “We Go Together,” and “Mooning,” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation. Starting off with an eight-year Broadway run, Grease is among the world’s most popular musicals and has a cult-like following, especially among teens!

Shawkemo Hills Hike
Aug 24 @ 8:00 am
Shawkemo Hills Hike

Duration
2 Hours

About
Shawkemo Hills offers a hiking experience through a portion of the island dramatically shaped by the last glacier to cover most of North America. From a high spot on this hike, see and learn about the formation of Coatue, Great Point, the Haulover, Nantucket Harbor and inner harbor shores. And from a low spot along the trail, sometimes called a frost bottom because frost prevails only at these lowest of island elevations when it does nowhere else on Nantucket, discover how the glacier shaped the hills and dells — kames and kettles in geologic terms — of this north central part of the island. This is probably the shortest hike Nantucket Walkabout leads, clocking in at no more than one hour.

This hike costs $40 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under. Check the Hike Calendar to see when we are hiking the Shawkemo Hills trail and to book it. To arrange for a private hike on this route, call or email us for our rates and to discuss your hiking needs.

What to Bring
Please wear whatever walking footwear works for you, and we strongly recommend bringing the following items on our hike: bug spray, water, a snack, and sunblock lotion. You may also wish to bring a camera, binoculars and compass to see more, plus a lightweight waterproof jacket if it looks like rain!
