A Walk Through History at Killam’s Point

with Town Historian Jane Bouley and Naturalist Martha Rice
Sponsored by the Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford

Centuries before the English arrived, Native Americans made Killam’s Point their home. Food was readily available, shelter in caves protected them from the elements, travel by water simplified moving and a spring supplied drinking water. Learn more when you join Town Historian Jane Bouley and Naturalist Martha Rice for A Walk Through History on Sunday, August 4 at Killam’s Point, 10:00 a.m. to Noon.

Killam’s Point is an ecological treasure, habitat for many species of bird and animals, with healthy forested uplands, expansive salt marshes, inviting sandy beaches and spectacular granite bluffs. The Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford are collaborating to provide programs like A Walk Through History to introduce the public to the stunning beauty, serenity and fragility of the Point.

The walk will start at the entrance of Killam’s Point, and is approximately 1.3 miles. Young children may need assistance; please do not bring dogs for this event.

Attendees must park at Orchard House Adult Day Center.

Registration Required. Call 203-314-7128 or email mhbrice@gmail.com.

The Branford Land Trust is a non-profit organization, celebrating more than 50 years of protecting Branford’s open space and natural resources.
