Sandy Point Sunset & Full Moon Nature Walk
Sun. Jun 4
Join us for a sunset walk at one of the most beautiful spots along the Connecticut shoreline. A long spit of sandy beach extending into New Haven Harbor, Sandy Point is not only a great place to watch birds, but also a popular spot for mating horseshoe crabs in the late spring. On this fun, leisurely one-mile walk we will take in spectacular views of the New Haven skyline, East Rock, Sleeping Giant, and other local landmarks. We’ll learn about some of the local flora and fauna, as well as about the human history of New Haven Harbor and its historic lighthouses. Kathie Hebert from the West Haven Watershed Restoration Committee will tell us about environmental challenges facing Long Island Sound and efforts to enhance climate resilience along the CT shoreline.
There will be a full moon this evening as well, which hopefully we will be able to observe.
Parking note: unless you have a West Haven beach parking sticker, there will be a small fee for parking in the lot that can be paid by cash or credit card, therefore we encourage carpooling.
