A Good Time to Be Outside

I am writing this in the early stages of the Coronavirus outbreak here in the Northeast. Like all of us, I am filled with apprehension for the health and welfare for my neighbors in the coming months. As a precaution the BLT has cancelled public education programs like our Winter/Spring Lecture Series, and we are monitoring the situation closely with respect to upcoming events and will keep you informed.

At the time of this writing, all of our public preserves remain open. I have been out on them daily with members of my family. I have seen an uptick in folks hiking and getting outside as most of us are putting other activities on hold to maintain social distancing. Getting outside and hiking remains a great option to boost your physical and mental health. Just remember to avoid hiking in large groups and respect distances when approaching other hikers.

For places to hike in Branford, see:

Shoreline Greenway Trail

We’ll be adding more posts in the coming days and weeks including places to walk, things to see, videos, and other contributions from our members. Please come back to our website, visit our Facebook page, or sign up for our regular Eblasts.

All of us at the Branford Land Trust remain hopeful for the best possible outcome over the next months and have our neighbors and friends on our minds.

Pete Raymond
President, Branford Land Trust
