Wine Trail of Litchfield County
Thursday, August 28 8AM-5PM
Litchfield County in the northwest corner of the state has been named one of the most exciting and fastest growing wine regions in the United States. A tremendous variety of wine styles and stunning scenery are to be enjoyed as we meander through the vineyards in this beautiful part of our state. This cool-climate growing region allows for refined flavor development of wines, and concurrently is a great place to look for early fall migrant birds. Leader: Priscilla Wood. Members $85/Nonmembers $95.
Birding Salem’s Loop
Thursday, September 4 8AM-4PM
Join us as we head to Salem to meet up with bird enthusiast David Bingham, who will take us searching for song birds inhabiting the nearby fields, forest, streams, and ponds. David Bingham is a retired physician from Salem and self-styled “amateur naturalist.” If time allows, we will head to Walden Preserve and the Zemko Pond Wildlife Management Area for another couple of hours. We may make a larger loop up to higher ground to more mature upland forest. Leaders: David Bingham and Andy Griswold. Members $65, Nonmembers $75.
