As we remember the 40 years of wandering through the desert, building Sukkot (booths) on our way to Mt. Sinai, take a short hike guided by Habitat staff on Sunday, September 30 from 10-11:30am at Habitat Sanctuary (10 Juniper Road) in Belmont. Discover animal dwellings and build your own temporary, natural dwellings with your children. Conclude your journey with a snack in the sukkah decorated with hopes for the new year. Rain date is Sunday, October 7. Geared for families with children 2+ years. Open the entire community. Cost is $15/family. Walk-ins are an additional $5.
