Colchester - Nature Walk
Babcock Pond Wildlife Management Area
Saturday, June 1
8:00am - 10:00am
Did you know that Connecticut's woodlands are home to some of the highest concentrations of bird species breeding in the continental US? The Babcock Pond Wildlife Management Area lies in the Lyme Forest Block, an Audubon-designated Important Bird Area (IBA) that contains critical habitat supporting a number of species of global concern, such as the Cerulean Warbler and Wood Thrush. This event is sponsored by the Colchester Land Trust (CLT) and Audubon Connecticut and is part of a bird walk series offered by the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project, an initiative launched by Audubon Connecticut, in partnership with the Eightmile River Wild and Scenic Coordinating Committee, The Nature Conservancy, local land trusts like CLT, and municipalities.
