Take a walk through Gather New Havens Quinnipiac Meadows Eugene B. Fargeorge Nature Preserve. Located on the Quinnipiac River, this 35-acre preserve includes tidal wetlands, coastal forest and coastal grasslands. There are two loop trails on the preserve and a bird blind overlooking the salt marsh and river. Keep a look out for many birdhouses, osprey nesting platforms, and a bat box! Benches and platforms provide a great chance for bird watching!
