Trails Day 2014 in Long Island Sound Stewardship Areas

National Trails Day weekend is a great opportunity for residents to enjoy the Long Island Sound coast and help out in a volunteer activity.

Since 1993, Connecticut National Trails Day events have been coordinated by the Connecticut Forest and Park Association as part of Connecticut Trails Day weekend. In 2012, the Long Island Sound Stewardship Initiative sponsored a walk at Barn Island Wildlife Management Area, one of the Sound 33-designated Stewardship Areas, as its first contribution to Connecticut and National Trails Day activities. LISS has expanded its involvement since, including organizing events for the first time in New York in 2014, where nature hikes, bird walks, beach cleanups, and invasive species removal activities will be conducted. These events aim to make the public aware of the recreational and biological importance of these treasured areas around the Sound.

If you would like to participate in one of the many Trails Day events in Connecticut or New York, refer to the LISS Trails Day 2014 Web page or the LISS Facebook page.
