Land trusts from Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, and Wilton have teamed up to bring you the first-ever Walk Your Land Trust series. Beginning in March 2022, each land trust will host an outing to introduce visitors to their preserves. We look forward to learning from each other, exploring our region’s open space, and making new connections.
This month’s walk will feature a tour of the Stamford Land Trust’s Helen Altschul Preserve, and an introduction to mushroom hunting. Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been mushrooming – that’s right, it’s a verb – before, here’s an opportunity to learn all about the wonderful and mysterious kingdom of fungi. Join Aubrey Carter from the Stamford Land Conservation Trust on a walk of their largest preserve where you’ll spend the morning looking for and identifying all the fabulous fungi that make the forest healthy and diverse.
