Sunday, February 12, is the deadline for the March newsletter.

If you can lead a bike ride, hike, ski or other activity in March, submit the details by midnight Feb. 12 to Lynne Tolman, LTolman@LTolman.org , 508-831-0301.

As always, call the leader if the weather or snow conditions are questionable, or if you have other questions.

Special note: Weather and ground conditions this time of year are hard to predict, so please check with the leader ahead of time to find out which, if any, activity is still scheduled. All locations are in Massachusetts unless otherwise noted. Ride category explanation.

If there's about 8 inches of snow on the ground and roads are plowed, we should be good to kick 'n' glide. Call or e-mail leader by 8:30 a.m. to confirm skiing, or to suggest hiking. St. John's Episcopal Church is near Brattle Street and the railroad tracks; meet in the church's rear parking lot. Access to Nick's Woods, a 60-acre conservation property owned by Greater Worcester Land Trust, is from Smith Lane, across Holden Street from the church. Kim is a GWLT ranger for the park. Avoid the parking spaces nearest the church building if you can.
