Located in Burlington, Connecticut, Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area is a 700-acre tract of natural land set aside for wildlife that also serves to introduce visitors to wildlife and natural resources management through educational programs, demonstration sites, and self-guided hiking trails and displays.
Managed by the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP), facilities at Sessions Woods WMA include an education center with an exhibit area and a large meeting room, as well as interpretive trails, habitat management demonstration areas, and a backyard wildlife habitat area.
The trails at Sessions Woods meet up with the Blue-Blazed Tunxis Trail, which winds from Bristol up to the Massachusetts line with a separate section running through Southington.
