Event Description: 

Are you already Wild About Nature? Or wanting to Explore Nature but not sure how? Join the Nature Nerds on a CFPA Ramble! Renee is a nature enthusiast and hopes to spread the love! Rambles will vary in length, difficulty, pace and theme. They will also vary based on the season. Nature Nerd Rambles are an opportunity to explore the woods while employing all our senses, trigger curiosity, share and seek knowledge, and nourish our souls in the great outdoors.

CALLING ALL NATURE NERDS... Join us as we circumnavigate Pattaconk Reservoir to admire the autumn beauty. We will explore the Cockaponset State Forest to look for fall mushrooms, cool creatures, and anything else that come our way! The approximately 2.5-mile hike will follow relatively flat terrain. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes. No dogs, please.
