Aspetuck Land Trust Hikes This Weekend: Hawks and Mushrooms

My family loves LOVES the Aspetuck Land Trust! We went on some great hikes for kids, and guess what? There are hikes for adults, too. In fact, there’s one coming up this weekend: a Hawk Walk and a mycology walk. For more information, visit the Aspetuck Land Trust’s website. While you’re there, consider supporting their mission. It’s only $50 per family and you’re helping to preserve and maintain the beautiful lands in Weston, Easton, Westport, and Fairfield. Of course, the hikes, trails, and preserves are always accessible to the general public, and your donations do help.
Think your kids might enjoy the hikes this weekend, too? They are a bit longer than the traditional short hikes for kids (over for the season, but look out for next year’s hikes here), bring them along. My family actually stumbled upon the adult butterfly hike instead of the kids’ airplane and butterfly hike, and it worked out fine. If unsure about whether your child will enjoy it, just send David Brant an email at Here is the latest email from Mr. Brant:
Fall is coming and it’s a great time to get outside on our 44 trailed nature preserves with over 30+ miles of trails.  Check out our great new Visit a Preserve section on our website where you can find a preserve that caters to your interests – mountain biking, kids, fishing, etc…
Our Short Hikes for Short People hikes are finished for the season, but you can still sign up for one of our Fall Educational Hikes like our wild mushroom or hawk hike coming up this weekend.
If you believe in preserving local open space, or understand the value of getting children outdoors, or simply believe that land should be preserved for its own sake, then please  CLICK HERE to become a member of Aspetuck Land Trust today! We need your support to preserve more land and get more people connected to the outdoors.
One of my best memories of the summer was our Birds, Butterflies and Paper Airplanes hike in the Trout Brook Valley orchard.  Kids learned about birds by making paper airplanes and they walked up to the highest point in the orchard to throw them into the sky. For more info on what we are doing to get more children outside, click here.
See you on the trails!
