Up Coming Lexington Events

Citizens for Lexington Conservation: Winter Walk in Dunback Meadow

Saturday, January 24 from 8:00-10:00AM
While this is a time of quiet in Dunback Meadow, there remain possibilities of viewing unusual birds such as perching owls (Northern Saw-whet Owl, Barred Owl, and Great Horned Owl), Common Redpolls and Rough-legged Hawks. Our usual feathered residents, the Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, Downy Woodpecker and Blue Jay, will be there also. 
If there is deep snow wear boots, as the walking can be rough. Beginners and children are welcome. If there is rain or a snowstorm, the walk would be cancelled. 
Meet at the entrance on Allen Street, where parking is available.

Chinese Culture Fair in Celebrating the Year of the Ram

Saturday, January 24 from 1:00-3:45pm  at  Cary Library, Lower Level Meeting Room  and also 7:00-9:00pm at  Lexington High School
The Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL), Cary Memorial Library, and the town of Lexington, are sponsoring a free Chinese New Year Festival this year, and you’re invited!  This year’s event, to be held on Saturday, January 24th, promises to be both special and spectacular. The Festival is so full of activities for all ages and interests that it had to be split into two parts! Experience a multi-sensory Chinese Culture Fair at Cary Memorial Library in the afternoon, from 1:00pm to 3:45pm. Spectacular performances will be on stage at Lexington High School in the evening.
Witness an artistic Chinese calligraphy demonstration, an interactive Chinese musical instrument exhibition, and try your skill in creating traditional Arts & Crafts. Get your phonetic Chinese name beautifully written on a souvenir bookmark. Join a festive parade to cheer as a lively and colorful dragon rhythmically roars through the library!
What’s a festival without food, one of the most important elements of any Chinese New Year celebration? Attend the festival and you’ll have a chance to sample traditional New Year snacks and goodies. Learn why these are favorites and some Chinese New Year rituals and “superstitions” that help assure good luck and good fortune in the New Year!
For more information about the festival, please visit CAAL's web site or Contact: Weidong Wang   781-325-5750

Winter Snowshoe Walk at Burlington’s Landlocked Forest

Sunday, January 25 from 1:00-3:30pm
Citizens for Lexington Conservation will be offering a first ever series of snowshoe walks this winter. The purpose of these walks will be to get outside and make use of those showshoes that you may have long neglected while enjoying the winter scenery of New England winter. The use of ski poles is recommended, and don’t forget to bring your water bottle to avoid becoming dehydrated.
Falling rain or heavy snow will cancel the walk. If snow cover is thin we will walk anyway but perhaps leave the snowshoes behind.
Meet at the parking area under the high-tension power lines on Turning Mill Road
