Take a walk in the woods and see for yourself why the SLT is working to protect this final piece of Tulmeadow Farm. There will be two different hikes: a short loop trail through the 73 acre woodlot and a longer hike to Town Forest and the Ethel Walker Woods (easy-to moderate in difficulty, approximately one to one and one-half hours). Coffee and breakfast will be served.

 

The late summer and fall should be spectacular - get out and enjoy it!  If you would like a map of the Ethel Walker Woods of Simsbury, reply with your address and I will mail one to you.

 

Finally - Don’t miss it!  The Simsbury Farmers market continues through October 9th!  Thursdays 3:00-7:00 in Simsmore Square.
