River Ramblers: Swendsen Farm Preserve
Flowing through the heart of our community, the Pomperaug River provides us with miles of scenic beauty and our most vital resource: Water. Each hike in the “River Ramblers” series invites people to explore a variety of public lands along the river to observe habitat and wildlife and to see different river processes in action. In this hike we will learn about the headwaters of our watershed at Swendsen Farm Preserve. Our walk will take us past the pond, through the meadows, and onto the treeline casting shade over the gorge portion of East Spring Brook. During these outings, we will also take a look at the cultural and geological history unique to each site, the dynamic nature of the Pomperaug River, and steps we can take to be good river stewards. FREE program, but pre-registration is appreciated! To register, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-263-0076. Programs are rain or shine (thunderstorms will cancel).
