Join us for an approximately 2-mile tour of Wintonbury Land Trust’s Hawk Hill Farm to learn about champion trees, invasive plants, and local birds (binoculars are optional). Hawk Hill has one of the oldest continuously operating farms in Bloomfield, and its gently sloping farm roads lead to beautiful views of the Metacomet Range and Hartford skyline. Our guides will be:
- Peter Picone, an urban wildlife biologist at the State Department of Energy & Environmental Protection,
- Ron Pitz, former executive director of KNOX, and
- Zellene Sandler, former president of the Hartford Audubon Society.
Meet by the red barn in advance to sign-in and be ready to begin at 1:00. For everyone’s safety, all participants must register in advance by April 21, wear a face mask, and maintain social distance between households. The rain date will be Sunday, April 25.
This Earth Day event is hosted by Wintonbury Land Trust and co-sponsored by the Bloomfield Beautification Committee and Bloomfield Conservation, Energy & Environment Committee as part of the Town’s Trees for Bloomfield initiative.
