Land Trust Walk Sunday Through Miner Nature Preserve


The Stonington Land Trust invites folks to its Winter Stroll Sunday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. for its fifth in a series of seasonal walks on Thomas Miner Nature Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary.

Bob Dewire, renowned naturalist, ornithologist is the guide. The stroll will have walkers meandering through a peaceful sanctuary, in the fields, “we’ll be in search of over-wintering birds such as bluebirds, winter wrens and hawks. In the woodlands, we’ll scan the trees for nuthatches, brown creepers, and woodpeckers,” according to the land trust website. “Snow-covered ground will allow us to read stories in the snow of the wildlife on the Preserve. Stroll will be approximately 1-1/2 hours long, on flat terrain.”

The 82-acre Miner Preserve is located at 236 Taugwonk Road in Stonington. Ample parking is available on the Sanctuary grounds. Sturdy footgear and binoculars are recommended.  Steady rain or heavy snow will cancel.

All ages are welcome. The walk is free.
