Hike & Seek and Beyond at Preston Nature Preserve
September 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFREE
Enjoy a late September Hike (& Seek) at Preston Nature Preserve, one of Avalonia’s 27 Hike & Seek properties. Hike & Seek is a fun, non-competitive outdoor scavenger hunt. Learn about the nature of the Preserve while using clues to find the items listed. We will provide a trail map with clues or visit the Hike & Seek page for Preston Nature Preserve on our website where you will find a trail map and the Hike & Seek clues. Explore at your own pace and come up with your own clues for new Hike & Seek targets.
Long-time Avalonia volunteer and Groton Town committee member Joellen Anderson will meet you at the trailhead to explain what to look for on the trails. She’ll also tell you about Avalonia and the history of Preston Nature Preserve before you set off on your self-guided adventure. After your hike, let us know how many targets you found and what new ones you’d like to add. Share your photos on Instagram. Be sure to tag @avalonialandconservancy and include #MyAvalonia
Trails: Mostly mowed grass surface pathways through open meadows, some slopes, wide enough for several people to traverse side-by-side. One quarter-mile stretch of trail through upland woods, hilly and narrow, with some roots and rocks in the pathway, as well as occasional protruding branches. Some side trails not mowed may be more of a challenge.
Parking: Ample off-street lot, grass surface, room for about a dozen cars, no parking space accessible to people with disabilities. Lot is located on 38 Krug Road at the PNP trailhead. Additional parking is available along Krug Road.
