Autumn Adventure Walk with Bruce Fellman & sign language Interpreter Joy Valenti
October 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join Avalonia on Sunday morning, October 9th, from 10 to 11:30, for an Autumn Adventure Walk at Knox Preserve with naturalist Bruce Fellman and sign language interpreter Joy Valenti.
We’ll explore the shoreline of Quiambaug Cove, hike through an upland forest, and see fields of goldenrods and other fall wildflowers that are magnets to pollinators, from honeybees to butterflies, including Monarchs getting ready to head to Mexico. The air should also be filled with birds as they begin their migration south for the winter.
This walk is open to everyone – the pace will be leisurely. It is not wheelchair accessible, but the trail is mostly flat with limited hills and slopes.
Bruce is wonderful with children and anyone who is interested in learning about the natural world. This is also Avalonia’s first accessible walk for Deaf people and we are pleased to welcome Joy Valenti, who will provide sign language interpretation.
The Knox Preserve is located at 41 Wilcox Road in Stonington. Parking is along the street. Dogs are welcome, but must be leashed.
