Explore the History and Ecology of Milford’s Coast: Charles Island Discovery Walk
Charles Island Discovery Walk
Thursday, November 21
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Visit Milford’s historic Charles Island, a scenic 14-acre island connected during low tide to the mainland at Silver Sands State Park. An island steeped in curses, buried treasure, failed business ventures, rumored to be haunted and now the summer breeding ground for a variety of protected avian species.
Colleen Noyes, Connecticut Audubon Society Naturalist and Milford native, will lead this walk out to the island at low tide. Explore the interior and exterior of the island, look for marine and bird activity and assess the damage from recent hurricanes.
Hiking boots, all weather/wind gear and binoculars suggested. Registrants will be notified if program is cancelled due to rain. Space is limited. Pre-registration required.
