A guided walk around Haley Farm State Park. Staff from the Connecticut Reserve and CT Sea Grant will lead a walking tour from the parking lot, along Palmer Cove, and through the upland habitats. Haley Farm is part of the newly established Connecticut National Estuarine Research Reserve, which was designated in January 2022 and is one of 30 Research Reserves in the country that study and protect estuarine habitats. Come learn why Haley Farm State Park is so special and about some of the work the Reserve staff is doing to monitor, improve, and protect this area. You will also learn about the work of CT Sea Grant and how the two organizations complement one another in supporting thriving and diverse coastal ecosystems and communities. This walk will be approx. 1.75 miles on some uneven ground. All are welcome, including well-behaved and leashed dogs.
