An Outdoor Nature Series Co-Sponsored by the Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford
The Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford are co-sponsoring a series of programs on Killam’s Point this year, launching this weekend:
Saturday, May 14, 10:00am
NATURAL HISTORY OF KILLAM’S POINT
Led by Martha Rice. Walk the beautiful trails through upland forest, by productive marshes and enjoy breath-taking views of the Sound.
Killam’s Point, an ecological treasure owned by the church, has healthy forests, secluded beaches, wide salt marshes, granite bluffs and a fascinating array of flora and fauna. Those taking advantage of the collaborative effort of the two organizations will have the opportunity to enjoy one of the largest, privately-owned undeveloped tracts on Long Island Sound.
Additional outdoor events at the Point include “Our Useful Neighbors, the Horseshoe Crab” (June 25), “Killam’s Point Shore Birds” (August 27), and “Killam’s Point Fall Foliage” (October 22).
The Land Trust, through its Nature Explorer Program, and the First Congregational Church of Branford are enthusiastic about this collaboration and hope you will join us for four fascinating programs!
All of these events will be held at Killam’s Point on Shore Drive just west of the Orchard House Adult Day Care Center. Please drive SLOWLY to the end of the road to the parking area. Bring water. Walking sticks welcome. For details, call 203-747-4184.
