Can you identify a tree by its shape and bark? On Saturday, March 11 from 2:00 – 3:30pm, come explore Killam’s Point in winter and find out how to tell a maple from a beech or an elm or an oak. Guided by local naturalist Lauren Brown, learn about the great variety of trees in southern Connecticut’s landscape.
The event, co-sponsored by the Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford, is free and open to the public.
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.
Killam’s Point is located along 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.
