Flora and Fauna Walk in Fairfield on Saturday with Milan Bull
Saturday, October 5, 10 – 11 a.m.
Join us for our seasonal flora and fauna walk at the Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street. Milan Bull, Connecticut Audubon Society's senior director of science and conservation, will join Fairfield Forestry Committee members Mary Hogue and Misty Beyer for a guided walk in the Larsen Sanctuary at the Center.
Over 30 trees and shrubs will be identified on the walk, including native and invasive species. The walk will focus on the animals and insects that live and eat the trees and shrubs. We’ll consider how trees and habitat prepare for winter. We will examine how they work together to keep the forest in or out of balance. Issues concerning climate change and its impact on the forest will be explored.
This is the second of the four seasonal flora and fauna walks that we are offering this year.
Free for Connecticut Audubon Society members and $5 for nonmembers. To register or for more information, call 203-259-6305 ext. 109.
