Southcoast Health to host December stroll through Doggett's Brook

Nov 20, 2017

It's not quite nippy enough to be wrapping up by the fireplace quite yet. While the weather is still mild, take a "Sunday Stroll" with the Buzzards Bay Coalition and Southcoast Health at Doggett’s Brook Recreational Area, at 55 Dexter Lane in Rochester.

The walk will begin at 10 a.m. on December 3. During the 1-hour walk through the woods alongside Doggett’s Brook, participants will get some fresh air and exercise while learning how to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

In addition to the walk, the Southcoast Health Wellness Van will be available to provide free health screenings for participants and members of the public.

Sunday Strolls are a monthly series of free mid-morning walks led by a Buzzards Bay Coalition environmental educator, and health professionals from Southcoast Health. The next Sunday Stroll after Doggett's Brook will take place on January 7 at the Lyman Reserve in Wareham.

To RSVP for this walk, visit or contact the Buzzards Bay Coalition at (508) 999-6363 ext. 219.
