Youth Winter Hike at TriTown
January 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The weather outside may be frightful, but a winter hike can be delightful, and to encourage you — as if Avalonia members needed any encouragement — we’re offering a special kid’s adventure on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 20th, from 2 to 3p.m. at the TriTown Ridgeline Forest Preserve in North Stonington. Naturalist and long-time youth leader Kelly Allen will lead 8 to 12 year olds and their adults in search of winter wildlife over relatively easy TriTown trails for about two miles, and if the weather cooperates, we’ll snowshoe a shorter route. After the trek we will enjoy hot chocolate at the Miller Road trailhead.
Participants will need:
Non-cotton base layers
Waterproof weather appropriate outer shells, such as snow pants and winter jacket shell
A full water bottle and a high energy snack (candy bars with nuts are perfect!)
Snowshoes (extras if you have them)
Location: TriTown Ridgeline Forest, 90 Miller Rd, North Stonington trailhead
In the event of truly frightful conditions – bitter cold, steady rain, strong winds, more than moderate snow — the reschedule date is Sunday, January 26, 2 to 3pm.
