Nature Walk: Excursion to the Barbizon Oak at Champlain North Preserve
Join us for an afternoon walk to celebrate Connecticut Trails Day sponsored by Connecticut Forest & Park Association in conjunction with National Trails Day. The two-hour interpretive walk will travel through mixed oak woods and moss-covered ledge to investigate a late season vernal pool. We will explore the native flora and fauna of the site, including the Barbizon oak tree, and a unique colony of native mound ants. Wear appropriate shoes for walking on a dirt trail, stepping across ledge, and along the edge of wet areas. No dogs please.
Featuring Judy Preston, Local Naturalist. Walk is free, but reservations suggested with Preston at (860) 395-0465 (rain or shine); meet at Picnic Table near Parking Lot at Museum.
