Brisk Winter Walk
Saturday, January 23, 9:00 am, Wethersfield. Meet Jim Woodworth and Goodwin College’s Bruce Morton, Program Director of Environmental Studies, at the Putnam Park parking lot, 100 Great Meadow Road, just north of the Putnam Bridge. We’ll peel away the centuries to imagine the river bank before the bridge, and explore the 300+ acre Crow Point property owned by Goodwin College. We’ll observe the process of nature reclaiming the land and waterways excavated for fill to build the highway across the ancient farmland and wetlands of the Great Meadows. 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.
