Estuary Explorations


Selden Creek From Above 
Saturday, October 13, 9 a.m, – noon
Selden Creek Preserve, Lyme

 Join the Roger Tory Peterson Estuary Center and conservation biologist Jim Arrigoni on a guided ecology hike of The Nature Conservancy’s Selden Creek Preserve in Lyme. Undulating gradually between mossy wetlands and dry oak and pine ridges, an unusually diverse variety of habitats will be encountered on this gentle 2-mile loop trail. Stone walls built in among the rock outcrops bear witness to the toil of Yankee farmers long ago, while birds and insects busily fly among the Witch Hazel blossoms, taking every advantage of October’s shortening days. Bring a bag lunch to enjoy when we reach he highlight of the hike: a cliff-top clearing with a birds-eye view of the vast marshes of Selden Creek and the autumn foliage of Selden Island.
