Natural History and Plant Community Hike
June 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am EDTFree
Please join Wendy Ward of the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service for a naturalist hike looking at ecological history and plant communities at the preserve. We will utilize several of the stops on our interpretive trail as grounding points for deeper understanding of the ecological community of the preserve. This moderate to strenuous hike will focus on botanical highlights and explore the sights and sounds of native wildlife including the abundance of breeding birds that will be present in the forest.
We encourage folks to bring water, a snack, bug repellent, and binoculars; please wear supportive footwear. Meet at the nature preserve parking lot on Daniels Hill Road at 8:00 am.
Co-sponsored by the Cheshire County Conservation District and Horatio Colony Nature Preserve.

It provides the community with more than 5 miles of hiking trails, a historic cabin and foundations, place-based education initiatives, ongoing research activities, and a public program series. The preserve is managed by Antioch University New England.
