The short business meeting where we will be electing officers will be followed by a presentation at 6:15 by Andy Bozzuto, who will discuss the Millpond Gatherings, his new business venture located on a historic mill site on the Farm River in Northford. Andy will share his insights into the history of this building and the site. He will also discuss some of his ideas for bringing people together there to enjoy the historic property and the surrounding farmland, perhaps to better understand the local environment and the importance of local food sources.
Light refreshments will be provided. We look forward to seeing you!
Join NBLCT on Saturday, June 4th for CT Trails Day where we will hike the Notch Hill Brook Trail where you will learn about the geology and forest makeup of the area.
The hike will be in two parts. First there will be a short walk along the old Trolley line, appropriate for all ages. Once that is complete there will be two options for the main trail. One is an easy to moderate hike, that will be appropriate for all ages. The second option will be for the more advanced and adventurous hikers to walk the ridge trail, which has a few very steep sections.
The day may also include a plant identification expert to talk about what plants and trees are along the trails. There will be 1-3 bridge crossings of Notch Hill Brook.
Dress comfortably and wear sturdy shoes, or hiking boots if you have them.
