Brisk Winter Walk
Sunday, January 17, 1:00 pm, Wethersfield. About 1 hour. Meet Jim Woodworth at 412 Hartford Ave, corner of Jordan Lane, for a short walk through the gate to our Wolf parcel and DeMille easement. See habitat improvements made with the help of a WHIP grant and volunteer work. Stay for a longer walk, another two and a half hours, up Hartford Ave. and out along the Hartford dike that divides the Folly Brook Nature area from the South Meadows Industrial Park. We’ll walk through the area slated for “tree removal” for the Brainard Airport approach and learn about advantages of “shrub/scrub” and early successional habitats. See full schedule here!
Dress for the weather and ground conditions, including mud or snow. Weather and water conditions may revise or cancel. These areas are used for hunting, so wear an orange vest if you have one. Call Jim Woodworth for the latest information, 860-808-9968. Free.
GMCT Brisk Winter Walks for 2021 are co-sponsored by the Land Heritage Coalition of Glastonbury, the Eleanor Buck Wolf Nature Center in Wethersfield, and Goodwin College.
Covid-19 adaptations! Walks are by Pre-registration only. Please register for each walk through Eventbrite. Go to www.gmct.org and follow the link to the walk you’d like to join. Each scheduled walk will be broken into groups of 10 walkers, each group departing on the half hour. Registrants will receive a free “ticket” to a specific departure time. With each reservation, registrants will be required to submit a waiver form that includes contact information and a pledge to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and stay home if they are experiencing any of the symptoms of Covid-19. Walkers are asked to arrive close to the start time of their assigned group to avoid large gatherings.
