Are you a champion for birds and other wildlife and love to learn? Train to become a volunteer to conduct bird habitat assessments.
Attend this all-day session conducted by Audubon Connecticut staff and a certified forester. Learn how to carry out an inventory of current songbird and habitat conditions on small privately-owned properties in the towns of Salem, East Haddam, Lyme, and Colchester. Following the training day, volunteers team up and walk a property with an Audubon staff member and a forester. A follow-up workshop for questions and answers is also scheduled. Then volunteers are assigned a property to assess on their own or with a partner.
When you have completed training and practice, you will be able to assess properties on your own. Use what you learn to enhance open spaces around you, and give back to the community by sharing your newly learned knowledge.
To sign up to become a bird habitat assessor, please contact Kelly Morgan at email@example.com or call 860-234-7630
This free program is part of a Bird Workshop Series offered by the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project Phase 2—an initiative launched by Audubon Connecticut, in partnership with the Town of Lyme and the Lyme Land Trust, the Eightmile River Wild and Scenic Coordinating Committee, The Nature Conservancy, and other local land trusts, and municipalities.

Join award-winning photographer Joe Standart for a program on photography of the natural world. Focusing on his own luminous photographs of Lyme landscapes, Standart will explain how site selection, composition, time of day, color and light influence his creative process. The presentation will also include landscape examples and highlights from his many years of experience photographing remote landscapes in other parts of the world. Standart began his career working for the National Park Service in Alaska, where he spent 2 years fording rivers, climbing mountains, and fighting off bears and mosquitoes, while documenting the last frontier.
Those who attend the talk will be invited to a walk guided by Joe Standart on Saturday, May 9 at 8:30 am, at a location to be announced. Standart will point out photogenic opportunities along the way and discuss how to set cameras to capture light, texture and composition in the natural world. He will give us insight into his creative process for expressing an artistic vision of nature through photography.
Joe Standart is a Lyme Land Trust board member and an internationally-known photographer well-known for his series of public art exhibits featuring monumental portraits of the diverse residents of New London, Litchfield, New Haven, Hartford and other communities. His provocative exhibit, WE ARE-A Nation of Immigrants was installed on the New Haven Green and surrounding buildings to act as a catalyst for honest dialog. For more about Joe Standart.

Join us for a tour of new signage on the Heritage Trail at Hartman Park. This signage, in the form of illustrated panels, gives insight into the history and activity of the people who once lived here based upon the remnants left behind.
The signs enhance information included in “The Heritage Trail, a Walk in Hartman Park” Booklet, written by Marianne Pfeiffer in 1996. An updated 2015 version of the booklet is available online at http://www.lymelandtrust.org/new/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Hartman-Booklet-Web-031020web.pdf
The entire walk is about 2.5 miles long with options for shortcuts. Bring your own water and a walking stick. There are some rocky areas and moderate hill climbs. Wendolyn Hill, Lyme Land Trust board member and Lyme Open Space Coordinator, will lead the hike.
Registration is appreciated: firstname.lastname@example.org
