Please join us for the opening of the Land Trust’s newest property, the Brockway-Hawthorne Preserve. This 82 acre preserve has been developed with a network of trails that traverses all the beautiful places, from Savannah-like open fields bordered by stone walls to some of the last remaining hemlock stands in Lyme. Parts of the trails meander along Whalebone Creek with wonderful rocky outcroppings and crossings on bridges built by Dominion Power Station volunteers. The trails connect with the existing system at the Ravine Trail, which in combination with Selden Creek Preserve, offers an amazing network of trails with many diverse habitats.
