WLT Spring Hike

Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 2pm. Meet at the corner of Plungis Road and Franson Road in North Watertown. We will walk down to observe a portion of Peck's Swamp, which will soon be protected once the Land Trust has complied with all the requirements from the state of Connecticut.  Then we will walk up Franson Road to the new young forest land created by Bill and Shelley Hedberg.  This is a short hike to a portion of Watertown that may not be familiar to many of you. You could add more info about the importance of young forestland to so many species of endangered birds, mammals, and amphibians.








 Many thanks to Eagle Scout candidate John Vito and Boy Scout Troop 52 for their work improving the Hickory Lane access to the Upper Nonewaug trail. A sign and a trail map box were erected and two park benches were installed.
