1. An Exploration of Forest Plants on the Ravine Trail

We are excited to launch our first full-length educational video: An Exploration of Forest plants on the Ravine Trail with Mike Zarfos, naturalist! 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.
