The Great Avalonia Trail Trek will be Saturday, October 16 through Sunday, October 24.  This week-long fundraiser will bring outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers together to register, fundraise, and get a great workout in on Avalonia’s beautiful preserves throughout southeastern Connecticut.  Participants can choose to hike, run, kayak*, or bike* any of our trails or ride their bike to our preserves.  *Select preserves are available for kayaking and mountain biking.  Road biking routes provided.
