Guided Nature Water at Janie Pierce Park Saturday, June 2, 2:00pm - 4:30pm
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.
