Estuary Explorations Guided Hike at Mt. Pisgah
Saturday, November 2, 9 a.m. – noon
Mt. Pisgah, Durham
Journey up the river to the south easterly-most headwaters of the Connecticut River to the Pitch Pine and Bear Oak-clad summit of Mt. Pisgah. Perched at 644 feet, this rocky summit offers fine views through the crisp mountain air to Durham Meadows and the Metacomet Ridge to the west. Various species of hawks, vultures and Common Ravens are easy to spot from this high vantage.
Session will conclude with a brown bag lunch and ecological discussion highlighting the plant and animal life encountered. Don’t forget to bring your bug spray, and binoculars! Suitable for ages 16 and up.
