We are excited to launch our first full-length educational video: An Exploration of Forest plants on the Ravine Trail with Mike Zarfos, conservation biologist! Rather than cancel the guided walk which was scheduled for May 30, 2020, we asked Mike to lead a remote walk so that the Lyme Land Trust video production team could record it and provide this virtual tour for you. In the video, which is about a half hour long, Mike explains how to identify several prominent species of plants and shares interesting facts about their human uses and natural ecology.

Michael Zarfos is a PhD Candidate in Conservation Biology at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry – SUNY.

The Ravine Trail Preserve parking is located on the west side of Joshuatown Road, about 4 miles north of the intersection of Joshuatown Road and Rte. 156. Enjoy Lyme preserves while following posted and current State and Federal safety guidelines.
