Thursday Hike: Morgan Pond, Ledyard

Thursday May 19th @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

On this hike, we will explore trails around Morgan and Rosamond ponds on Groton Utility land (not open to the public). Mid May is the peak season for migrant birds and spring wildflowers. Wide paths lead through woodland and wetland habitats with open views across the water along the way. Meet at the small parking area/rest stop along the north side of Sandy Hollow Roadd (Ledyard). Space is limited, so please carpool if possible.

To sign up, please contact hike leader:  Maggie Jones, (860) 941-7682 and email: [email protected]

Please keep in mind that these are wooded trails with stumps, roots and rocks so be sure to wear hiking boots or good walking shoes. Make sure you bring water and maybe a snack. Hikes leave promptly so please be on time.

NOTE: This event is FREE to all. Inclement weather cancels and if in doubt, contact leader.
