CFPA Ramble: Women of the Woods Hike
Women of the Woods or WoW has monthly gatherings for women to enable them to connect with the natural world. Most gatherings are hikes in the woods of central Connecticut. In addition to hiking we take the time to admire the beauty around us, experience some quiet time in nature, and enjoy each others company.
Women, join us for this Women of the Woods hike at Field Forest, Durham. This CFPA protected property has a fantastic vernal pool. There likely will be wood frog eggs and perhaps wood frogs too!
We will hike ~2 miles in this beautiful woods behind Coginchaug High School. We will look for spring wild flowers and spend some time exploring the vernal pool. The wood frog eggs will be hatching soon. There are a few steep sections, but we will take our time.
NOTE: This hike is for women only. Please do not bring children, male friends, or pets. Registration is required, please contact the leader at the information provided below. Directions will be sent to all who register.
