Celebrate Earth Day with a talk and walk with Anthony Irving, well-known forest ecologist. He will lead the walk on the 250-acre Town of Lyme’s Johnston Preserve, which has been designated a future Old Growth Forest. Tony will explain how the varied habitats in this preserve protect the headwaters of three separate watersheds. The drainage divide of the three watersheds is the highest point in Lyme from which the waters flow in three separate directions and eventually meet the CT River. We will visit a vernal pool and learn about its significance to a healthy watershed.
Registration required: firstname.lastname@example.org Meet at the Johnston Preserve parking lot on Rte 82.
Tony Irving is the Lyme Land Trust board president-elect, and chairman of the Eightmile River Wild and Scenic Committee. The Johnston Preserve was designated a future Old Growth Forest by the Old Growth Forest Network (OGFN) in 2021
The walk is co-sponsored by the Lyme Land Trust, the Lyme Public Hall, and the Town of Lyme.
