The Wilton Conservation Commission, Wilton Garden Club and the Norwalk River Watershed Association will host a guided walk in Allen’s Meadow on Sunday, April 24 at 10 a.m.. The walk will provide residents with a unique opportunity to learn about birds and their migration through Wilton.
Joe Bear, with the Audubon Society, will be leading the group walk. This event promises to be an informative and fun walk for grown-ups and children. The Allen’s Meadow parking lot is located on Rte. 7 just north of Wilton High School. Binoculars are recommended and participants should consider long pants and light colored long-sleeve shirts. As interaction with wildlife will play a large part of this walk, dogs, even on leash, are not allowed.
Refreshments will be served following the walk, during which time Joe will be available to answer any questions. Members of the hosting organizations will also be present to provide information about other upcoming events. Pre-registration is recommended via email. Should there be inclement weather, those who pre-register will be contacted.
