The White Memorial Foundation was a gift of over 4000 acres from Alain White and his sister May in 1913 to the public. The sanctuary contains over 35 miles of hiking trails through varied terrains, a Bantam Lake, a research and education center, and a campground. We will visit one of the most popular areas, the boardwalk around Little Pond. Little Pond is a part of the Bantam River. There is canoeing, kayaking, bird watching, and nature study to be enjoyed.
The White Memorial also runs a Conservation Center with exhibits and programs for the public. See their web site at http://www.whitememorialcc.org. You may visit the museum after the walk if desired.
Parking is along Whites Wood Road. There is no parking lot.
This will be an easy walk of about 1.8 miles with a level trail. Social walking pace. We will be out for 1.5 hours, or as fate may have it.
You may visit the center after our walk if you like. Admission is charged.
Dogs unfortunately are not allowed (local rules). Children are welcome as long as they can go the distance.
The walk will be rescheduled if there is a threat of rain.
