Enjoy Fine Hiking & Dining this Saturday

It's raining now, but it'll be sunny on Saturday May 15th, 2010 so join us for a fun guided hike at 2:00 (please show up at 1:45 so we have a head count for Bertucci's). Meet at the Abby Wright parking lot on Nells Rock Road (across the street from L'Hermitage condominium and Chordas Pond).

It'll be an easy 2 mile guided hike lead by the Shelton Trails Committee on Nell's Loop Trail with a side excursion to Eklund Native Species Garden. Learn what's been going on in the area & see the scouts at work replacing a footbridge and re-routing a trail. And the best bonus is that Bertucci's Brick Oven Restaurant has volunteered to provide food and beverages after the hike, FREE, to all the participants. It should be a lot of fun so make plans to join us and enjoy some great Spring walking.

The rain date is Sunday, 5/16. This is a great hike for children and pets (please bring a leash for your dog, whether you leash your kids is up to you). For more information go to,, or call (203) 926-9572.

In addition to our hike at 1:45, the Scouts are going to be meeting at 8:30 in the parking lot to start re-building our J-Pond bridge. If anyone wants to help them do some work before the fun events they would love to have you participate.

Also on Saturday, May 15th, 2010 the Connecticut DEP is hosting The Great Park Pursuit at Indian Well State Park all day. There will be many activities for families trying to enjoy the outdoors at a beautiful park along the Housatonic River. Our own Teresa Gallagher will be demonstrating letterboxing, with a new hand-carved stamp.

So, this coming Saturday, you could get the satisfaction of helping some scouts make our trails better by building a bridge, take the family to some explore the outdoors at Indian Well, come with us on a pleasant Spring Hike, and get a great meal courtesy of Bertucci's, all for the low, low price of FREE. You can't beat that deal with a stick. Come out and join us.
