NOTE:  Volunteers needed for the KTW booth between 12:00 and 5:00 PM.  Please contact Mary Baier at wuznguts@msn.com to sign up for a time slot.

 

2.  We’re delighted to announce that the Town of Simsbury has initiated “Gifford’s Green Conversations” as a follow-up to the successful “Green Summit.”

Named in honor of Simsbury’s own Gifford Pinchot (1st Chief of the U.S. Forest Service), these forums will address key environmental issues, provide overviews of specific green initiatives and start “conversations” on how the town – and any town - can become more “green.”  These programs are free and all are encouraged to attend.  Read more about it here:  http://keepthewoods.org/articles/article057.html

    

A Gifford’s Green Conversation will be held Wednesday, June 4, 2008  - 4:00 p.m-6:00 p.m.

Topic:               Community Forestry and the Historic Streetscape 

Speaker:           Mr. Tom Zetterstrom

Location:          Simsbury Public Library Community Room, Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury, CT 06070

 

This presentation is in lieu of the June Open Space meeting – attend and see the new library!

3.  Saturday June 7th is Connecticut Trails Day!  

There will be over 130 events held in over half of the towns in Connecticut.  No one in Connecticut should be more than 15 miles away from a nearby event.  For a copy of the Connecticut Trails Day brochure listing all of the events, please visit www.ctwoodlands.org.

 

4.  SUNSET PADDLING ADVENTURES ON THE FARMINGTON RIVER!

Canoe or kayak every Tuesday from June 10 through July 29!  Participants will push off as the sun sets for an evening of relaxation and camaraderie.  Meet at 6:15 on the river side of Curtiss Park in Simsbury to be shuttled to the start of the two-hour adventure – rentals are $40 for a canoe and $30 for a kayak.   To reserve a seat, phone 693-0385 for Huck Finn Adventures.
