Saturday: Our Useful Neighbors, The Horseshoe Crabs

BLT-horseshoecrabLearn about “Our Useful Neighbors, The Horseshoe Crabs” as part of an outdoor nature series co-sponsored by the Branford Land Trust and the First Congregational Church of Branford to be held on Saturday, June 25, 3:30pm at Killam’s Point in Branford.

In this second program of the series, local naturalist Martha Rice leads a walk at Love’s Beach to learn about some of Earth’s oldest creatures, their spawning and birth on Killam’s Point beaches and how their blood makes our vaccines safe.

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 “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!

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.
