Virtual Thursdays: Flansburgh Travel Fellows

Boston By Foot will host another round of online presentations by our Flansburgh Travel Fellows. Volunteers and members are invited to join us at 7:00 pm each Thursday from April 30th through May 28th.

In 2008, longtime friends and BBF supporters Bill and Lia Poorvu established the Flansburgh Travel Fellowship to honor Earl and Polly Flansburgh. The Poorvu Family Foundation generously awards a fellowship to one or two Boston By Foot volunteers each year to travel to a city or cities best experienced in our favorite way: by foot!

During this set of five virtual presentations, we'll travel to places such as the Netherlands, England, Scotland and Ireland.

Volunteers and members will be sent registration links via email. Others who may be interested in attending these online sessions are encouraged to become a member. In addition to free access to all of our remote content, you'll enjoy free and unlimited admission to nearly all of our walking tours once our outdoor schedule resumes.

Be sure to check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for further announcements, including suggestions for exploring Boston's rich history and architecture from the comfort and safety of your home!

Boston By Foot is also continuing to train its guides remotely. First up will be virtual demostrations of our revised Heart of the Freedom Trail and North End tours. More information on this initiative will be provided in the coming weeks.
