Kicking off this year's River Ramblers series with PRWC
is a relatively flat walk around Transylvania Pond, which
straddles the Southbury/Woodbury town line. Transylvania
Pond is the headwater of Hesseky Brook, which flows north into a lush wetland that hosts numerous bird, mammal, reptile and amphibian species. Participants will learn about the history of the park, local flora and fauna, current issues surrounding the pond, and what steps we can all take to be good river stewards.
Please dress for outside, wear sturdy shoes, bring water and snacks, and be prepared for nuisance bugs. Participants should meet in the parking lot at Janie Pierce Park located on Transylvania Road a few minutes before 2pm for check-in.
