Event Description: 

Northeastern Connecticut's largest land trust Joshua's Trust and the James L. Goodwin Conservation Center team up for a scenic spring tour of the Preston Sanctuary in Hampton! Join Goodwin Conservation Center’s Naturalist Emma Lorusso as we explore other beautiful preserved space in Hampton! We will take a loop across an open field then through an Oak Hickory Forest habitat and visit the Little River. Who knows if we will find some aquatic organisms along the stream banks! Spring is just starting to burst and it will be exciting to see how the forest is doing after a long hard winter. Emma has been the Naturalist at Goodwin for two years, she loves sharing her passion for the forests of northeastern Connecticut.

It's going to be a beautiful day! You may want to bring a picnic lunch and blanket to enjoy after the program is over. The Preston Sanctuary has a great hill for picnicking.
