Wildflower Walk at Red Hill Woods

May 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join botanist Lauren Brown on an afternoon walk through Red Hill Woods in search of spring flora and fauna on Saturday, May 25 at 3:00 p.m. The event, hosted by the Branford Land Trust, is free and open to the public.

Wander along the Red Hill Woods trail and across the amazing 1200-foot bog walk that traverses this stunning 29-acre property with views of the sedge-red maple floodplain and adjacent streams. In the spring, this wetland is sunny and filled with clumps of sedges, different species of ferns, and numerous leafy herbaceous plants growing beneath a high canopy of maples and other hardwood trees.

Other property features include an upland forest with high ledge outcrops that overlook a vernal pool and a Native American rock shelter. It is a special place, representing the types of open spaces that have been protected by the Land Trust since its incorporation in 1967.

Branford is celebrating its 375th anniversary this year and the Branford Land Trust is proud to sponsor events that highlight the town’s natural beauty. Come and see what makes Branford so special!

From Leetes Island Road, turn onto Red Hill Road and continue past Van Wie Pond to the very end of the road. Park along the gravel lane.
