Time: sunrise to sunset, registration starts at 9am
Place: Banningwood Preserve, Lyme CT
Contact Email: info@lymelandtrust.org

B2.-LYME-beaver-pond-angie-falstrom-1The 3rd Annual Lyme Land Conservation Trust Paint-Out continues the plein air tradition established by the early American Impressionists who founded the Lyme Art Colony over a hundred years ago. All plein air artists are invited to join their colleagues for a beautiful autumn weekend of outdoor painting and camaraderie.

The 2014 Paint-Out will be located in the northwest corner of New London County on the Lyme Land Trust’s 102-acre Banningwood Preserve. The clear waters of Roaring Brook flow through the middle of the Preserve. Dramatic stone ledges, once quarried to provide stone for nearby Gillette Castle, rise over the landscape. These quarries are now filled with water and provide important habitats for local birds and wildlife. The buildings and steeples of Deep River can be viewed from the ridgeline. Additional features include lush meadows, cedar groves, and tree canopies over the river.

For breakfast and lunch, take the less-than-a-quarter-mile jaunt over to the charming Hadlyme Country Store at Hadlyme Four Corners. They have Ashlawn coffee, breakfast sandwiches, homemade pastries, and a very tasty lunch menu.

Works created during the 2014 Paint-Out are eligible for exhibition and sale during the Celebrating Lyme’s Beauty Exhibition, to be held at the Lyme Art Association from November 14, 2014 through January 4, 2015.

Presenter: Geocaching enthusiast Jim Lockhart will lead the event.
!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

trekker logoThe Lyme Land Trust and the East Haddam Land Trust have scheduled this field class to introduce those interested in learning how to geocache, the real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Instruction will be provided by active geocachers led by Jim Lockhart, a geocaching enthusiast.

To actively participate, bring a GPS-enabled device or smart phone. Before you attend, please download this Free Geocaching App to use during the event. To download the app, you will be asked to choose a unique geocaching user name and sign up for a free membership in geocaching.com.

This is a fun family activity suitable for all ages.

Using a smart phone or other GPS device, participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (treasure-filled container) hidden at that location.  You may take some treasure as long as you replace it with something of your own. Or as geocachers say, “Take some stuff, leave some stuff.” We will provide the treasures for this event. There are also geocaches on Chestnut Hill Preserve, Beebe Preserve, Hartman Park and other locations in Lyme.

Registration is appreciated but not required. Please let us know if you are planning to attend. Email rsvp@lymelandtrust.org. Put “Geocaching” in the subject line.

trekker logoThe Lyme Land Trust and the East Haddam Land Trust have scheduled this field class to introduce those interested in learning how to geocache, the real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Instruction will be provided by active geocachers led by Jim Lockhart, a geocaching enthusiast.

To actively participate, bring a GPS-enabled device or smart phone. Before you attend, please download this Free Geocaching App to use during the event. To download the app, you will be asked to choose a unique geocaching user name and sign up for a free membership in geocaching.com.

This is a fun family activity suitable for all ages.

Using a smart phone or other GPS device, participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (treasure-filled container) hidden at that location.  You may take some treasure as long as you replace it with something of your own. Or as geocachers say, “Take some stuff, leave some stuff.” We will provide the treasures for this event. There are also geocaches on Chestnut Hill Preserve, Beebe Preserve, Hartman Park and other locations in Lyme.

Registration is appreciated but not required. Please let us know if you are planning to attend. Email rsvp@lymelandtrust.org. Put “Geocaching” in the subject line.
