Winter Social & Hike

Date: February 2, 2019

Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Hawk Hill Farm, 22 Duncaster Road, Bloomfield

It’s time for a party with muffins, hot drinks, and (hopefully) snow at Hawk Hill Farm (map for directions).

Members and guests are invited to an informal Winter Social at Hawk Hill Farm. From 3:00 to 5:00 pm the Beanery Bistro will serve delicious muffins, hot chocolates, and coffees in the barn. Fire pits outside the barn will keep away the chill. We’ll have lawn chairs, or bring your favorite. Dress is stay-warm casual! Current members are free, and guests are $5 at the door (additional donations welcome).

Beginning at 2:00 pm an optional hike will start from the barn – and return in time for warm drinks and muffins with the others! Join us for up to 1.5 miles up Hawk Hill to Bloomfield’s LaSalette Park’s pond, woods, and view of Hartford.

We’re celebrating winter … and will be happy to tell you about the progress restoring the barn, keeping the farm in active use, and connecting trails in Land Trust and Town properties.

RSVPs appreciated. To help us plan, tell us you’re coming with an email.

Over the Mountain Hike

Enjoy an invigorating hike from Simsbury to Bloomfield co-sponsored by the Wintonbury and Simsbury Land Trusts and Bloomfield Leisure Services. Along with the scenery, the free hike will showcase WLT and SLT properties that provide town-to-town trail connectivity linking through Penwood State Park.

For the approximately 5.5-mile hike, we’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. at the hike’s end point: the historic 1834 Oliver Filley House in Bloomfield’s LaSalette Park. Bloomfield Leisure Services will provide a bus to shuttle hikers to the starting point, the Flower Bridge in Simsbury.

From there, we’ll ascend to Penwood via SLT’s Owen Mortimer parcel and their gorgeous Tanager Hill property. We’ll take a rest stop in Penwood, visiting Lake Louise and The Pinnacle.

Then we’ll descend into Bloomfield by way of WLT’s Stout Family Fields and Hawk Hill Farm, home to distinctive Highland cattle, arriving back at LaSalette Park with (hopefully) some stunning views of Hartford.

Hawk Hill

Hawk Hill Farm by Dennis Hubbs

Wintonbury Land Trust will host an informal discussion and tour of Hawk Hill Farm for State legislators, community leaders, and other land trusts in the greater Hartford area on Tuesday, July 17. The event is sponsored by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council to celebrate projects that received funding from DEEP’s Open Space & Watershed Land Acquisition (OSWA) grant program and the Community Investment Act.

 

The Land Trust’s acquisition of Hawk Hill Farm and improvements at the Town’s adjacent LaSalette Park were made possible in part by these and other State funds. So please invite your State legislators to join us in recognition of their continued support for these funding programs.

We look forward to an informal conversation with legislators, neighboring land trusts, and others about your local, regional, and statewide land conservation priorities. We’ll also take a short walk into Hawk Hill Farm to meet the Scottish Highland cattle and enjoy the view of the Hartford skyline. The event is from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., and heavy rain cancels. Hawk Hill Farm is located at 22 Duncaster Road in Bloomfield.
