The Flora/Fauna Around the Florence Griswold Museum Campus
June 4 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join experienced local conservationist Judy Preston for a circumnavigation along the edges of the 13.5 acre campus of the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme.
Preston shares information about the flora and fauna of the micro environments as well as the larger context of the site in the lower Connecticut River estuary region. Tour begins walking along the banks of the Lieutenant River with a view of the salt marsh, and continue along the old farm road that leads to Lyme Street. Tour leads across the more cultivated landscape of the Museum formal spaces to the wooded stream bed. The four sides of the property offer different natural ecosystems with different stories to tell.
Participants may choose to tour the Museum’s newest exhibition, “Flora/Fauna: The Naturalist Impulse in American Art” at the conclusion of the walk. Museum hours 1-5pm. $10 for adults, $9 for seniors (62+), $8 for students with ID, children 12 and under are FREE.
