​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Upcoming Hikes...

Saturday July 8, 2017; 11:00 a.m.  Join us on a bracing bike ride along the Airline Trail to Willimantic. Our pace will be moderate (this is not a criterion race!) and should take about an hour and a half of peddling, with breaks. We'll stop for lunch at the Willimantic Brew Pub, then turn around and peddle back. Or, have a friend meet you there and drive you home. Either way, it will be a great day!

Past Hikes...

- June 3: CT Trails Day! we enjoyed a serene paddle around 125-acre Red Cedar Lake, taking in the sights and sounds: birds chirping, turtles dropping off logs into the water, and ducks flapping.  And one Blue He​​ron! It was a marvelous day and a wonderful bit of exercise with some old friends and some new ones.

- May 7: Two dozen curious adventure seekers met to learn how the Jeremy River has changed since the removal of the Norton Mill dam. We discussed the history of the mill, the Town of Colchester's plans for the mill site, and how the removal of the 300-year old will affect fish migrations. Several folks with local knowledge contributed to expanding our understanding of these matters. A vibrant outing!

Our goal is to help educate, entertain, and amuse! Usually this means a walk in the woods, but we can take to the water or the wheels.

Nature, in its ministry to man, is not only the material, but is also the process and result. All the parts incessantly work into each other's hands for the profit of man.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature
