    This is a remarkable region, and we hope you will join us to celebrate its resources! On September 24 & 25, 2005, 70 sites and organizations throughout the Area will open the doors to more than 150 unique programs free of charge. Row a dory in Gloucester harbor, explore the first planned street in America and go bird watching in one of America’s best birding destinations. We invite you to join a museum director, a mayor and an expert forager to gain a new perspective on art, downtown revitalization, and the edible landscape. Wander halls of antique homes and the leafy corridors of the region’s conservation lands. You will discover walks, hikes, rides, paddles, sails and strolls for all interests and ages in the Trails & Sails program this year. It is all free and first-come, first- served.
