Winter walk, Crow point

  • February 1, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • Putnam Park Office Building

Meet Jim Woodworth and Goodwin College's Bruce Morton, Program Director of Environmental Studies, at the Putnam Park parking lot, 100 Great Meadow Road, just north of the Putnam Bridge. We’ll peel away the centuries to imagine the river bank before the bridge, and explore the 300+ acre Crow Point property owned by Goodwin College. We'll observe the process of nature reclaiming the land and waterways excavated for fill to build the highway across the ancient farmland and wetlands of the great meadows.
From I91 N, take exit 25/26 and bear right on Exit 26 to Wethersfield. At the end of the ramp, turn left under the Putnam Bridge to the parking lot. From I91 S, take exit 26, Marsh St. /Old Wethersfield. At the end of the ramp, turn left under the highway, and right at the T toward the Putnam Park lot. From Route 3N/ Maple Street, take the exit toward I91 north, but bear right to exit onto Great Meadow Road, and turn right toward the parking lot. From Route 3S, take the I91N exit at the end of bridge, but bear right to exit onto Great Meadow Road, and turn right toward the parking lot.

Dress for the Weather and ground conditions.  Many places will be muddy. Weather and water conditions may revise or cancel. This area is used for hunting, so wear an orange vest if you have one. Call the CT Audubon Society for the latest information,[masked]-8402.  Free.

    Excellent informational session along with a wonderful group. Also, the weather was the best you could ask for.

    This was my first hike with this group--it was a nice walk, and yes, it did feel a bit like Spring. Learned some interesting things as well.

    There are no charges for these walks. None of our walks have any fees for the leaders. Some times there are parking fees or the cost of your items at a restaurant, but those would be mentioned in the description if so.

    I wish I could go on this winter walk but I have other duties that are taking up the whole day. These area walks are so great, even low temperatures would not keep me away normally. Will catch up another time.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
