Come out to Flanders’ Whittemore Sanctuary to celebrate CT Trails Day. Flanders Land Management Volunteer, Jeff Sherman, will lead the hike. The Whittemore has an extensive 8-mile trail system, which winds through a wide range of ecological habitats, including woodlands, streams, ponds and a large bog. The bog and wetlands support endangered, threatened and rare plants. The forest on the property is, historically, one of the oldest privately managed forests in Connecticut, containing planted white pine, regenerated oak and several large laurel and tulip tree stands. ALL are welcome to attend and join in on the outdoor fun! Hike is moderate, 120 minutes, 3.5 mile loop.
