Join environmental educator and nature enthusiast, Dave Parsons, on a guided nature walk through the New Canaan Land Trust’s Still Pond Preserve. With meadows, wetlands and woodlands, the preserve is home to a variety of different habitats, with a diverse array of bird species, wildlife, and wildflowers. Participants will gain a 360 view of nature at its spring best during this guided walk. David will identify birds, wildflowers, trees and other interesting natural features that are present during the walk.
Participants should dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes, and be prepared to walk on uneven surfaces. While not mandatory, bringing a pair of binoculars is recommended. The walk will last approximately 75-90 minutes, with plenty of stops along the way to observe and discuss surroundings.
