Take a winter nature walk with the Greenwich Land Trust’s stewardship staff through one of GLT forest preserves on Tuesday, March 3, from 1:00-3:00pm.

See a maple tapping and syrup boiling demonstration and learn what goes into making the sweet stuff!

The process of maple tapping is indigenous to our northern forests and an important part of our local history. During this time of year, the forest is just waking up from a long slumber and the talk will cover the clever ways plants and wildlife survive the winter.

The event will take place at The American Chestnut Sanctuary (Across from 18 Burning Tree Road) in Greenwich. Walking conditions are moderate difficulty with minimal uneven terrain. The price is $25 for non-members and $15 for members. Children under 12 are free.

To register for this event and find out more information, visit www.gltrust.org.

The Greenwich Land Trust, founded in 1976, is a 501c3 non-profit organization and nationally accredited land trust dedicated to maintaining 741 acres of land in Greenwich to protect the environmental health of our community, preserve its natural beauty and conserve its waterways, forests and wildlife for this and future generations.
